A 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.
