Purple Star School for Military Families
Military Family Resources
Ambassador Program: PEER HELPERS
The Peer Helpers program works through a group of students and educators to build a positive school climate and culture. Students selected as Peer Helpers are trained in communication and referral skills and must adhere to the program's Code of Ethics. Peer Helpers support other students as tutors, mentors, and confidants. They perform various roles including individual student support (including military students), RtI Tier II, facilitation of small groups, or leading campus wide campaigns to reduce at-risk behavior and increase attendance. Peer Helpers can offer military students and their families encouragement and assistance while transitioning into the school community.
We have Peer Helpers in 4th - 6th grades. They can easily be identified with their Peer Helpers badges.
