What is a Peer Leader?

A peer leader is a typically developing teen ages 13-19 years old who participates in the Teen Night sessions. Peer leaders help facilitate social interaction among peers by engaging in activities with the group on a volunteer basis. All peer leaders undergo a brief training to help them support all participants and maintain an inclusive environment.
