About us

Peer Helping is a variety of support services initiated by trained peers of elementary, middle, and high school students who empower and support each other. Peer Helpers are trained to recognize when a peer is in need, listen to them, maintain confidentiality, and assist them with emotional, social, and academic struggles. Our mission is to empower students to be academically, socially, and emotionally successful; to recognize and resolve conflict; to value diversity; and to be advocates for positive change and healthy choices. We want students to feel valued, accepted, and be free from negativity. The idea of peer support is not new, nor is it limited to the school setting. Many corporations have job mentoring programs, many court systems use conflict mediations, and many other professionals use the leadership skills that you’ll gain from participating in the Peer Helper Program. Students complete training sessions that are all about learning a set of skills to equip them to be the most effective, compassionate, knowledgeable helper possible.
