Peer Counseling

  • Peer Counseling The Mission

    To develop and enhance the health, safety and well being of our youth by focusing on peer education through a comprehensive program and curriculum that encompasses social and emotional skills and awareness, peer mediation, academic opportunity, student service and referral.

    New River's Peer Counselors strive to be role models in our school and continue to carry their knowledge, training, and skills to their communities.  Our Peer Counselors are active in assisting staff through our Teacher Outreach Program by helping in the Media Center, working in teacher's classrooms, helping in the various office suites and really enjoy assisting students on a student to student tutoring role ( academics, bridging language barriers, lending a listening ear).  We are here for anyone and everyone in our school to make our home away from home a place students and staff will enjoy spending their day learning.
