Peer to Peer

Peer to Peer is a selective student leadership team. P2P is a group of 8th-grade students who applied for and were selected to be trained as peer leaders in the area of healthy decision making and substance abuse prevention at the end of their 7th-grade year. These students sign a pledge to remain tobacco/vape, alcohol, and drug-free, and to follow the rules and laws of their school and the larger community.  The group meets twice a week with two adult mentors to receive training in communication, leadership skills, decision-making skills, as well as awareness of issues facing teens. 
 
During the second half of the year, they facilitate prevention activity outreaches with our 7th grade students on topics that include substance use and abuse, resisting peer pressure, and healthy decision making.  They also touch upon issues such as bullying, social media, and intolerance. 
 
Another highlight of our program is our annual family night in May.  This program, open to all of our 7th grade students and their parents, is facilitated entirely by our peer leaders.  The purpose of the event is to help improve parent/child communication, and to create an opportunity for parents and students to discuss important issues such as trust, peer pressure, and substance use/experimentation in a supportive atmosphere.
 
While our Peer to Peer program may look a little different this year, we look forward to finding new and innovative ways for these student leaders to have a positive impact on our school!
