Students who are interested in developing leadership skills can take the Peer Facilitator course which will permit them to recognize and intervene in problems identified in their school.
Peer Facilitators may be requested to work one-on-one or in small groups with other students on school, peer, and family related concerns. They may also do classroom presentations on conflict resolution.
To take this course students must apply and be selected as peer facilitators. Students selected must evidence satisfactory academic achievement, as well as emotional maturity and leadership potential. Students must exemplify, model, and maintain appropriate behavior. Students will work under the direct supervision of a school counselor. Grading will be on a pass/fail basis. After being selected as Peer Facilitators, students must complete a summer peer facilitating training program and at least one mid-year training during the school year. Ten (10) service-learning hours may be earned.
