The SART (Sexual Assault Resource Team) Peers program is a peer education based program in District 6 (Greeley Schools). We work with student leaders who volunteer to be peer educators at their high school. 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.
SART is looking for a diverse group of volunteer Mentors who are interested in supporting high school youth as they take on the task of educating their peers about sexual violence.
