Mission Statement

Peers Educating and Encouraging Relationship Skills.

Description

The PEERS Project has adopted a character development program from Celebrate Life International (CLI) known as Teach One to Lead One(R).

CLI has used Teach One to Lead One (T1L1) for the purpose of transforming at-risk youth into responsible citizens through teaching character.

Unlike many other programs, T1L1 provides an active learning environment utilizing an established curriculum that includes role playing, skits, A/V examples, story-telling and the like in order to fully engage kids rather than merely lecture to them on the importance of character.

As its main offering to schools, PEERS carries a Peer-to-Peer mentoring program. This program allows students to actively engage one another on the importance of concepts such as risk avoidance, relationship and leadership skills.
