New Peer Mentoring Course

Our new and improved Peer Mentoring Programme now includes training around sexual health promotion and will be up and running during the early part of 2009. Places on the training course are limited to a maximum of 10 participants (6 boys and 4 girls).

As well as being a fun and positive way of getting more involved in our youth projects; the course will provide you with all the necessary skills and knowledge you need to help encourage and promote good sexual health amongst your peers and other group members. Existing group members with a local connection to Enfield or Haringey are especially welcome to apply - Email us for further details.

What will the course cover?

The course will run for four sessions and is a mixture of group work exercises, discussions & experiential learning. The main topics are:

• What is Peer Support?
• How do Peer mentors help?
• Differences, values and attitudes
• Communication skills and body language
• Supporting others to access local sexual health services
• Delivering sexual health information

Some of the benefits for peer mentors include:

An opportunity to develop new skills
The chance to make a difference to someone else
An opportunity to contribute to the development of project
Increased responsibility within the group
Travel expenses paid – on production of a receipt
A certificate of completion outlining the new skills you’ve acquired
An end of course celebration meal
