WHAT IS PEER EDUCATION?
Peer Education is about providing young people with the skills and training to inform their peers on issues that affect them.

This Sexual Health Centre project is funded by The Cork Local Drugs Task Force and The Young Peoples Facilities and Services Fund.
AIMS OF THE PEER EDUCATION PROJECT:
Peer Education provides young people with an accredited qualification for their work.

The initial 10 week training programme is designed to inform and examine the participants' knowledge and behaviour around sexual health and drugs.

A further 10 week accredited training programme includes more in depth training in group work and facilitation.

The peer educators are provided with support and supervision to help them undertake their work.

The programme, designed by the Sexual Health Centre, is experiential in nature and is a stepping-stone for young people to enhance their own communication and inter personal skills.

With this in mind it is hoped that young people will gain knowledge and become more assertive and confident in their every-day lives.

WHAT KIND OF PERSON IS A PEER EDUCATOR?
Someone who is between the age of 16 and 21.
Someone who cares about their friends and other young people
Someone who can interact with others
Someone who wants to be able to enhance his or her own personal skills
Someone who just wants something different!
Someone like YOU perhaps.
