Peer Leader Training
In Brave Step’s Peer Leader Training, we will explore together what it means to be a peer leader and discuss best practices. Brave Step currently hosts Courageous Corner, our peer support group, Courageous Book Club, and Courageous Creators for art activities. This training will be a step towards becoming a Brave Step peer leader for one or more of our Courageous programs.
The virtual training will take place on Saturday, Aug. 21 from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
While you are deciding whether you want or are ready to be a peer leader, here are a few things to consider:
- Are you in a safe space, both mentally and physically, in your healing and recovery process?
- Are you comfortable sharing your story and facilitating conversations on sensitive topics?
- Do you feel you are ready to commit to helping others on their healing?
If you answered yes to all of three, please apply to join us on Saturday August 21 to learn more! The training is not a commitment nor an invitation to be a peer leader for Brave Step in the event you decide you are not ready to be a peer leader.
It will be a virtual all-day training with a lunch break.
There is an expectation that peer leaders will commit to participate for at least a full year and lead/co-lead 3-4 times.
Peer leaders will have the opportunity to lead Courageous Corner, Book Club and/or Creators.
Prospective peer leaders who complete the training and are ready to lead will be required to complete a background check and a QPR (Suicide Prevention) Training.
