Peer Helpers

Peer Helpers are a diverse group of students with core skills that help them to identify and communicate with their at-risk classmates. The concept is based on the fact that when a young person is seeking help, they will likely reach out to their peers long before turning to an adult. 

These trained students known as Peer Helpers offer their fellow students encouragement and assistance with the day-to-day challenges -- serving as tutors, mentors, mediators, and support systems for their peers. Peer Helpers serve as role models and assistants to youth who may not have either at home.
