What does the role of Peer Education Coordinator involve?
The role of Region 4 (Peer Education) Coordinator mainly involves supporting all of our county peer education coordinators alongside keeping us in touch with headquarters. I also get to arrange trainings for new Peer Educators and topic trainings for our existing Peer Educators. I am hoping to continue and grow the great work of Peer Education in our Region - we are near the top nationally, and also raise the awareness of what our Peer Educators can provide for units!
