Through a new partnership with Health Ed Pros for the 2016-2017 school year, the PEERS Project is able to offer advanced training for PEER Leaders and additional classroom training and education for the middle school students.
Training for the PEER Leaders will include opportunities for further learning on specific health topics. Middle school students will benefit from Health Ed Pros providing the first classroom lesson to discuss the “uncomfortable” stuff and field specific health questions.
As an organization, the mission of Health Ed Pros is to provide health education programming for students, teachers, and staff. Health Ed Pros staff has over 75 years of combined health education expertise including: curriculum development, staff development, and program delivery for early childhood – adults.
