There will be 17 eighth grade Peer Helpers for the 2013/2014 school year. Peer Helpers are chosen based upon a completed application and 3 teacher recommendations, a screening process by the Counselor, and required interviews. Peer Helpers may be involved in peer tutoring, mentoring, and peer mediation. Peer Helpers are chosen in April/May each year, and are trained in August/September. Peer Helpers meet weekly during the school year.
