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, Nov. 5 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, Nov. 5 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.

Virtual Training

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.

Leadership Options

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.
