PEER EDUCATION AT
THE BRYN MAWR SCHOOL
Bryn Mawr trains three teams of three
peer educators to teach four lessons to5th grade students and four
lessons to 6th grade students. Each team has at least one senior
Peer Educator who acts as a mentor to the team and works with the
team to rehearse lessons.
The lessons taught to 5th grade focus on:
· Being True to Self
The lessons taught to 6th grade focus on:
· Risks and Consequences
· Getting Help
Additionally, we also have two new programs
that we are implementing. Our senior Peer Mentors have completed
the second year of teaching a suicide prevention lesson to all freshmen.
This year we are adapting that program to better serve the needs
of the Bryn Mawr community. Also, we will be having two informal
lessons with 8th grade students this year to discuss decision-making
situation when transitioning to the upper school.
