Natural Helpers

Natural Helpers is a nationally recognized program where middle and high school aged students learn to be peer leaders and guide their peers to making positive choices. Students who become Natural Helpers are recognized amongst their peers as being natural leaders and people their peers gravitate to for support. Natural Helpers aren’t professional therapists, rather, they are expert listeners and attempt to help their peers gain new coping skills or by talking them through difficult situations. Students naturally talk with their peers before any other adult, on issues relating to academic stress, boyfriend/girlfriend issues, or situations occurring at home. Every Natural Helper participates in a two day training to help them recognize when they can help their friends and when or where to ask for help for issues beyond their comfort level.
