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.
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.
