Águilas Mentoring Program

Águilas Mentoring Program Mentorship program to help new & transfer students alongside upperclassman based on academic achievement, leadership development and relationship building.

The Águilas Mentoring Program (AMP) was established in the Fall of 2008 through the Office of Diversity Programs and Services (now called the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Multicultural Education) at George Mason University, Fairfax campus. The Águilas program was created to provide Latino freshmen, sophomores and transfer students with a strong academic and professional network of upperclassmen. AMP assists students in transitioning successfully to Mason and to the professional world by fostering leadership and academic excellence through various programs and services. Although Águilas is oriented towards Latino cultures, we welcome all students.

Mission: The mission of the Águilas Mentoring Program (AMP) is divided into two significant parts, our collective purpose and goal. Our Purpose: to promote academic achievement, leadership development, and relationship building amongst our “jóvenes” at George Mason University. Our Goal: to provide “jóvenes” at George Mason University with a strong foundation and network, showcase academic excellence, encourage opportunities for professional success, emphasize campus involvement and maintain retention of “jóvenes” pursuing higher education. What is “jóvenes”? “Jóvenes” is the Spanish translation for youth. The term itself is directed towards young males. [Updated 8/19/18]
