Human Options' Teen Ambassador Program

Teen at purple socks football gameA new addition to our community education services, the Human Options Teen Ambassador Program equips teens with the skills needed to serve their communities as peer-to-peer mentors.

As a peer-to-peer mentor, the student can serve as a resource, a helping hand, a sounding board and a referral service for other youth. Human Options peer-to-peer mentors receive specialized education and resources relevant to prevention or responding to dating violence and relationship abuse.
