Youth Leadership at Safe Homes

All youth who attend Safe Homes have opportunities to plan and facilitate activities related to their interests and become Peer Leaders. Peer Leaders are a vital part of Safe Homes. 

Peer Leaders:

  • Shape programming

  • Are ambassadors for the community

  • Have the opportunity to lead activities

  • Meet weekly to discuss activities and to identify key themes/problems they feel the Drop-in Center should address

  • Participate in the development and planning of the Safe Homes quarterly schedule

  • Provide peer support to other youth at the drop in center

  • Receive extensive training

  • Conduct trainings and presentations for community youth workers and educators
