Peer to Peer Education

The high school years are a time of growth and change. We grow physically, mentally, and emotionally. We will ask questions, meet new challenges, seek answers, make mistakes, and hopefully learn to take full responsibility for our choices. Research shows that a teen’s peer group has a great influence on the way he or she behaves. This is true of both risky and safe behavior. Peer to Peer education makes use of peer influence in a positive way. Our goal is to provide our peers with the information they need to navigate their high school years in the best way possible

Peer to Peer Education consists of four programs: Reality Check, Link Crew, PAWS (Providing Awareness for Wildcat Students) and UP (Unconditionally Positive). Students who participate in these programs grow as ethical leaders who are positive role models for their peers. In each program, students provide guidance for their peers to better understand high school and contribute to the positive culture of LGHS.
