Who we are

The Peer Educators lead educational programs designed to foster responsible attitudes and behavior. Our topics cover a range of physical and mental health issues with an emphasis on substance abuse. We also serve as resource persons to individuals seeking information for personal or academic reasons. 

Who we serve

While most of our programs address Berry students, we lead programs at local schools (grades K-12), colleges, hospitals, church youth groups and any other group where young people gather to grow and learn. There is no fee for our services.

In the last decade, the Peer Educators have been awarded the outstanding area chapter award numerous times.
