Seeds of Hope Peer Leaders and Peer Leaders in Training
Each year, alumni of the Seeds of Hope Felician Youth Leadership Conference return as peer leaders (formerly peer mentors). Each leader is assigned to a group of first-time Seeds of Hope participants, providing them with mentorship, leadership, motivation and guidance.
Students in high school who wish to be peer leaders must apply to become peer leaders in training.
Peer leaders and peer leaders in training become members of the Seeds of Hope planning committee, helping to shape the experience while building their own leadership skills.
Peer leaders and peer leaders in training must:
- Arrive at the Maryville Retreat Center the week before the start of Seeds of Hope to participate in training and assist with preparations for the arrival of participants.
- Remain at the Maryville Retreat Center for at least one day after the closing of Seeds of Hope to participate in a mandatory evaluation/planning session.
- Participate in any additional training and/or planning sessions, as requested by the program outreach coordinator.
If you have any questions about becoming a Seeds of Hope peer leader, please contact Caroline Stanfill, program outreach coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-650-7936.
