Peer Mentors Rock!
DSASO is proud of our partnerships with local school districts in the Rogue Valley. We provide peer buddy and peer mentor training for both peers and school staff enabling district schools to provide peer support in general education settings for students who need extra support.
DSASO currently supports the Peer Buddy Program at elementary schools and the Peer Mentor Program at middle schools.
