The L4L Navigators are a network of trained peers who are currently enrolled in the School of Social Work (as either Senior Bachelor's students or Master's students). The primary role of the Navigators is to support the L4L Scholars as they work through the personal and academic challenges that can divert attention from successful college completion. The Navigators will assist students in accessing services, supports, and opportunities, while promoting self-advocacy. Navigators will lead the L4L scholars during lunch workshops and will help program staff examine themes in the challenges facing students as a way of encouraging institutional change.
