Pay it Forward

A three-session workshop for students, Pay it Forward seamlessly blends activities, discussions, and trainings into one powerful peer leadership training program. Over the course of the workshop, participants are trained as Peer Leaders and learn to leverage the power of peer influence to help other teens cope with the universal, everyday problems and pressures of becoming adults.

Because peer leadership is perpetuated when young people “pay it forward,” workshop participants are encouraged to share the skills they have learned with other students; develop their own ideas; set their own goals; and work together to create unique programs that promote respect in their schools and communities.

The workshop objectives are to:

  • Address important transitions in young people’s lives by helping peer leaders develop skills that reinforce healthy values.
  • Encourage critical thinking.
  • Reinforce relevant concepts through experiential learning.
  • Engage participants in creative team activities that reinforce the principles of teamwork: effective communication skills, collaborative problem-solving, and planning.
  • Encourage team members to get to know each other in new ways, and help them form positive and meaningful connections.
