Peer Education

The Peer Education 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 Educators can initiate activities in their schools and communities, information tables and educational events. In-house trainings occur throughout the year. We may also be available if you would like to organize a full training for your school, neighborhood or region.

If you have an existing Peer Education 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.

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

It is full of activities and youth friendly information that focuses on sexual and mental health (including substance use), dating relationships, communication, etc. as well as how to be a good support and provide resources to other youth.
