PEER EDUCATORS (PEERsuaders)

A group of high school-aged students, ages 14-19 who reside in across Metro Atlanta counties in Georgia. They are trained as peer educators by MTCI’s Peer Manager to facilitate interactive, marriage appreciation, health and wellness educational presentations among other student groups and throughout communities that we serve, as well as youth across Georgia in accordance with the Healthy Marriage Initiative Demonstration Grant 93.086. The will help teens internalize the values presented ~ not just hear the information, not just intellectually process the information ~ but take ownership of the material and put it into practice in their own lives. Peer educators will drive all community events and reinforce the lessons taught in the classroom.
