Education

As Peer Outreach Workers, we come to our positions with life experiences. Once we’re hired with AYA we go through a lot of training. After our training is done we do our best to facilitate presentations for you. Topics vary and are facilitated as requested. You say what you want to learn about and we’ll gather resources and knowledge to put it together. So far we’ve done presentations on the following:

  • Addictions
  • Balancing Education and Employement
  • Birth Control
