When it comes to youth peer support, there needs to be clearer pathways that increase access to these services. We at Youth MOVE PA are striving to make these services more readily available throughout our state. We also believe that training and education are crucial steps to ensuring that Pennsylvania’s Youth have an opportunity to learn about Peer Support as a career pathway and to embrace resiliency and empowerment in their own lives. To address this statewide need, The Copeland Center and Youth MOVE PA have joined together in bringing a new training model to schools and communities throughout the Commonwealth. The Peer Generation Youth Empowerment Training model focuses on strategies for resiliency and offers pathways for individuals to get in touch with their unique and authentic selves. Participants experience an environment that is culturally grounded and focuses on practical ways to be inclusive toward the diversity of all communities and experiences. Individuals will also become better equipped to practice peer support in real life situations that could be easily implemented at school, home, or in their community.
