Meet RVCC’s New Peer Mentor: Amber Goodrich! 

Major: Social Services 

Hello, my name is Amber and I am a Peer Mentor at River Valley Community College. I am in my second semester working towards my degree in Social Services. One day I hope to use my education to become a Behavior Analyst. I currently work at Youth M.O.V.E as a Youth Peer Support Specialist. On the rare occasion I have free time, you’ll find me dressing my cat in Hawaiian shirts or loading up on candles and clothes at TJ Maxx. As a new college student who works full-time, I understand some of the struggles that exist with balancing work and school and getting the resources needed to be successful. My goal is to answer the questions that anyone may have and to lead people in the right direction (toward everything RVCC has to offer its students). Please reach out with any questions or just to say HI via email:
