What do you do in Peer Resources?

 What do you do in Peer Resources?

We do a variety of activities training students in: communication skills, analyzing oppression, analyzing and solving problems, acting as mentors to younger students, etc.

Peer Resources is not a normal looking class. We have couches and comfortable chairs. With a few exceptions, everything that is said in the class is confidential.

   

Can students just stop by the Peer Resources room?

 

MOST DEFINITELY!!! Peer Resources is not just for people in the classes. It is also for people who just need a safe, warm, comfortable place to hang out during lunch or with a teacher pass.
