What is TPI Buddy? TPI Buddy program is informal mentorship that TPI students offers to Mt SAC students. Mentees include ESL students, new MT SAC students and anyone who enjoys having a
friendly buddy on campus.
TPI students = TPI Buddies. Starting Fall 2020, all TPI students are expected to participate in at least 1 hour of TPI Buddy mentor activity and one
ambassador activity per semester. Fall 2020 activities are held virtually.
TPI Buddy = ambassador. Please promote TPI and upcoming TPI orientations in your class(es) and in the MT SAC community. The flyer for orientation and info
sheet will be provided for you.
