PeerPOWER Violence is an interactive, research-based prevention program for youth between the ages of 9-13 years. PeerPOWER is designed for an after school setting. The program is based on the Health Belief Model with each of the 6 key factors of the model incorporated into 12 lessons, designed to increase the likelihood that participants make positive decides in regard to critical health issues. PeerPOWER is facilitated by one adult Outreach Worker and two high-school aged Peer Educators, who are all highly trained in the program and working with youth. The Peer Education approach is an effective way to teach young people about making healthy decision. This program uses interactive games and group discussion to cover topics such as anger and stress management, cliques and bullying prevention, team work and communication, among others. Our Peer Educators also work to provide youth with the skills they need to work with others and keep violence out of their lives through role plays and discussion of real world scenarios.
