Narconon Peer Leadership Training Program
Peer leaders are a tremendous resource, and with the proper training are very effective in educating their peers on substance abuse and other subjects.
The Narconon Peer Leader Training was developed as a result of many years experience in the field of drug prevention and the education of young people on alcohol and other drugs.
Students are provided with the skills necessary to become competent leaders amongst their peers and take an active role in combatting substance abuse. This includes setting a good example for elementary school children and showing these young people that life is better without drugs. The above is accomplished through a series of exercises and lessons in communication and listening skills, interpersonal relationships and how to relay information on alcohol and other drugs.
The key element of the program is communication skills. The students participate in training exercises that increase their ability to focus attention, confront issues they might otherwise shy away from, develop listening skills, relay a communication effectively and most importantly, raise their confidence level.
These simple, yet extremely effective, exercises require the participants to demonstrate their competence in the relay of information to their peers.
The second segment includes learning skills which cover how to work with people of different age and literacy levels and how to overcome the barriers to communicating information to them.
Each program is specifically designed to the needs of the group, taking into consideration their purpose, goals and activities. Emphasis is placed on creating a more workable group that will remain active in the school and community. The above skills are then applied to the specific theme of the program. Some of the specialized programs available are:
- Leadership skills and positive role models
- Conducting effective community projects
- Alcohol and other drug education
- Violence prevention
- Public speaking
- Peer Counseling
