Peer Generation Symposium: Engaging, Educating and Empowering Youth
August 24, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
You’re invited! Youth ages 16-30 and People who work with youth. Registration is required.
This experience will provide participants with the tools to engage providers and youth to learn “trust” that peer support among youth is a viable and important concept. The event is targeting the implementation of evidenced-based, peer-to-peer services for transitional-age youth. We will present the new Peer Generation Toolkit which will provide youth, and those serving them, step-by-step methods to engage youth and community stakeholders.
This project, “Peer Generation” will be the kick-off for a broad scale effort to support peer specialist services among this age group.
