About the event
Join us for the first meeting of 1st Up: McGill’s Peer Support Group for students who self-identify as first generation.
We’ll be meeting in the Brown Building – Room 5001, from 5:00pm to 6:30pm. Come drop in at any time, meet facilitators Diamond and Sarah (both first gen students at McGIll), and have some snacks. There will be a chance to chat and vent about first gen issues and to set some goals for our group for the coming school year.
About 1st Up:
1st Up is a monthly peer support group for McGill students who self-identify as first generation. Facilitated by two first-generation students (Sarah and Diamond), the group offers emotional and academic support in an informal, peer-to-peer structure. Monthly meet-ups will cover a variety of topics including navigating the university experience, social justice issues, and self-care strategies.
