PEER (Positive Experiences in Educational Relationships) is a specialized class in LCPS, for student leaders, that is designed to develop students’ peer mentoring skills and help teach them how to assist their peers emotionally, socially, and academically. Peer groups focus on areas such as bullying, healthy relationships, substance use, mental health, suicide, special needs populations, violence prevention, and community outreach efforts.
As positive role models, peer helpers develop and implement educational and awareness programs which address issues facing today’s students. Through prevention and intervention approaches, the peer program functions as a supplemental resource for increasing overall effectiveness of student services within the school setting.
