Peer Educators

Do you enjoy working with youth? Want to gain skills that will look great on your résumé? Join Break the Cycle’s Peer Education Program in LA!

As a Peer Educator, you will conduct classroom presentations to youth ages 12 to 24 in Los Angeles County on dating violence and healthy relationships.

We train Peer Educators to use our [Ending Violence] curriculum, conduct basic data entry for program tracking and participate in future opportunities to assist with help services.

Peer Educators must have strong verbal and presentation skills, reliable transportation (including a valid driver license and proof of insurance), and be willing to submit to a background check and TB test.

Responsibilities

Responsibilities vary and may include:

  • Implementing our [Ending Violence] curriculum in schools and organizations across Los Angeles County
  • Maintaining a good rapport with youth participants at all times, making discussions relatable and enjoyable
  • Checking in weekly and sending reports to the National Community Organizer
  • Conducting program tracking using Salesforce
  • Mandatory attendance on training dates

How to Get Started

This is an unpaid volunteer program. Current college students or graduates from an accredited university between the age of 21 and 26 are welcome to apply.

We ask Peer Educators to be available EVERY Tuesday, starting January 7th - May 27th from 12:00-2:00pm for presentations.

Interested candidates should send cover letter and résumé specifying your interest in the Peer Educator position by email or mail to: volunteer@breakthecycle.org by December 7th, 2013.
