Working in secondary schools to deliver a peer education programme for young people aged 11-19 years.
Weekly support sessions are provided to prepare S1 & S2 peer educators to deliver their programme and workshops to other groups. Our programme focuses on Transition, Drugs, Alcohol & Tobacco, the risks and effects. We provide a 2 day teambuilding course for all S1 & S2 peer educators. This element encourages group participation, confidence building and prepares the young person for their peer education role delivering a four x 2 hour session programme to Primary 7's in local primary schools dealing with peer pressure, substance misuse and health related activities. This helps create a network of peer support for young people in transition moving from Primary school to Secondary school.
