Our Mission: to empower teens!
How? Through our unique peer-led and adult supervised curriculum. Teens learn how to identify and defend their goals and how their decisions have a direct and immediate impact on their future. They learn how their personal choices are strongly influenced externally by peers, family, media, and society; and internally through self-rationalization and behavior justifications.
Because of PEERS...
97% could identify characteristics of unhealthy relationships.
95% learned refusal skills that would help them to resist pressure to use alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, and to become sexually active.
85% said Peer Leaders impacted their decision to avoid reckless behavior.
