Become a PEER Ambassador

Young people are the most effective ambassadors of system transformation. 

CYFA centralizes youth voice in its work because young people have the right to represent their interests, identify their challenges, and design their own solutions. PEER integrates youth voice through a critical service-learning opportunity. 

PEER is intentionally designed to support peer-learning in two ways:

Sharing knowledge, ideas, & experiences

Modeling a culture of responsibility through restorative practices
