The SART (Sexual Assault Resource Team) Peers program is a peer education based program in District 6 (Greeley Schools).

After an extensive training in the fall, students begin presenting in health and PE classes district-wide to their peers about sexual assault and sexual harassment.

Mentors with some basic victim advocacy training/skills and a basic knowledge of issues related to gender and sexual violence are preferred (additional training will be provided).
