Peer Support

The Peer Support Program is for people ages 14-18 and consists of a youth-directed 32-35 hr comprehensive training program. This program provides them with skills and information to educate and provide resources for their peers. These newly trained peer supporters can initiate activities in their schools and communities, information tables and educational events. Three in-house trainings occur throughout the year.

If you have an existing Peer Support or Peer Helper group in your school you can request a supplemental workshop. We are able to meet with groups for up to an entire day to supplement their training. We may also be available if you would like to organize a full training for your school, neighborhood or region.

Contact peersupport@teentalk.ca or 204-784-4010 to discuss these opportunities.
