Peer Leader Program

Our Core Program will look a little different this year… 

After much consideration and a lot of community conversations, we have decided to make some changes to Core Program. This year’s Core Program will be four months long, beginning in late January and ending in mid-May. We believe this change will provide more flexibility for all of our participants and allow youth to participate in other extracurricular activities.  

Same-same, but a little different 

We will still have the same magic that makes tSB Programs so special- social justice workshops, mentors, retreats, community meals, and (of course) snowboarding. 

Peer Leader Program will also be a little different this year. Peer Leader training will run from November-January. Peer Leaders will have fewer set responsibilities, and more opportunities to engage in activities that interest them personally. Some Peer Leader responsibilities include leading one Core Program Workshop, helping with general Program coordination (opening circle, set up, family group), and developing the Core Program Calendar. For more information, please check out the Peer Leader Application. 

Application are open! Apply before October 31st!

What is a Peer Leader?

The Peer Leader (PL) role is vital to tSB as a youth-led organization. PL’s are ambassadors and youth leaders of tSB. The PL Program’s mission is to facilitate the development of youth leadership skills in a select group of tSB graduates. We’ll do this by training PLs in leadership, personal, professional, and, important life skills.

Peer Leader responsibilities include:

  • Attend Peer Leader Meetings (first Tuesday of the month) 
  • Responsible for facilitating at least one Wednesday night workshop 
  • Help with general coordination of program nights (in-person) 
    • Set up, clean up, opening circle, family group activities, etc. 
    • Help develop program workshops and service projects 
  • Evaluate Prophet & Mentor applications and give suggestions for acceptance 
    • Interview and choose Mentors 
    • Serve as a bridge between Prophets and Mentors
  • Work with our Prophets during small group discussions, manage large group dynamics, and encourage participation (on the mountain, and at service projects)
  • Recruit and identify potential Peer Leaders 
  • Fostering tSB’s culture and values within the Core Program space
  • Receive training in public speaking, group facilitation, and conflict management
  • Fulfill the Peer Leader role in the retention of Prophets 
  • Peer Leaders will choose one project, goal, or area of focus that they would like to complete by the end of Core Program. 
    • Public speaking, marketing, event planning, curriculum writing, service project, social justice workshop etc. 


Why should I be a Peer Leader?

“Being a peer leader made me not shy to talk in a big group and gave me the power to believe in myself. Having mentors being in the programs really helped me because they are supportive, caring, and kind.”

Beintou , 2021 Peer Leader

“My time in tSB taught me to be more confident in my experiences and my own truth. It validated and supported me in ways I haven’t been supported in before. tSB opened space for me and dozens of other youth to be open and understand the world in a safe, comforting environment.”

Kenny Phan, 2021 Peer Leader

All participants, volunteers, and staff must always wear masks when participating during in-person tSB activity. (Participants will be provided with a mask and hand sanitizer if needed). tSB will have a check-in procedure checklist for each in-person outdoor trip/activity.
