This is achieved through a three to four year skills training and mentorship programme in which carefully selected teenage opinion leaders are equipped and supported as Peer Educators in their last four years of high school. Peer Educators become role models who use the power of peer pressure as a structured and positive force for personal, group and community change.
These youth leaders are not only provided with a lifetime toolkit of skills, leadership development and a connection to future economic and study opportunities, but are given specific roles and responsibilities to bring about a sustained revolution of hope and positive social norms among their generation. This is a ‘by youth for youth’ person-by-person approach. Peer Educators are quality assured to measurably deliver peer educator to peer services and messaging to their peers and younger children according to the gold Peer Education Curriculum.
