Young Life has been involved in Pakuranga College's Peer Support Programme for over 5 years. The Peer Support programme welcomes year 9 students by connecting them with year 13 students where they discuss topical issues that young teenagers face, peer pressure, drugs etc. The programme runs throughout term 1, commencing with a 3 day camp and followed by weekly sessions on a Friday morning 8:30-9:30am.
Pakuranga College has asked us to provide 15 adult leaders for their camp this year. Volunteer leaders have the opportunity to get alongside teachers and students at camps held in six locations. It's heaps of fun and it's a great way for us to serve the local community and build potentially life long relationships with Students and staff. Volunteers are also welcome to continue to attend peer support training sessions for the remainder of term 1 and are of course welcome to maintain other involvement in the school through Young Life.
Volunteers don't have to pay anything to attend these great camps, so if you are interested please let me know asap. If you know of anyone else who would like to attend one of the peer support camps please let me know also.
