    Who are we? 
    PEER Helpers are students who are trained in basic counseling, listening and communication skills.  PEERS are available to talk with other students who may have a problem but don't want to talk with an adult.  PEER members are selected through an interview process.  The PEER class meets during the school day and is a non-credit class so students must have room in their schedule to participate. 
    In the past, the PEER class has sponsored:
    • "Mix It Up Day" where students are asked to sit with some one new during lunch. 
    • School wide projects on Bullying, Teen Dating Violence and Respect. 
    • "Lunch Buddy" PEER takes new students to lunch.
    • Mentors to elementary school students
    • "Stress Less, Laugh More" week before exams and SOLS
    • At some schools, PEER provides peer support for students needing a peer to talk to

    This year, PEER will meet during lunch blocks. After training, the PEER members will choose the special programs and ways they would like to build a strong school and student body.

    Please note that this is not an academic tutoring program.
