Peer Leaders Support

PEER LEADERS – OUR RECOVERY CHAMPIONS

Peer Leaders are our recovery champions who advocate against drug abuse. Having suffered deeply from drug abuse, they share their personal experiences and motivate youths at-risk, those in recovery and others to stay away from drugs.

The Peer Leaders Programme is aimed at grooming persons in recovery to serve as role models and peer mentors. They must show a willingness to serve and must possess leadership qualities.

Services Offered

TRAINING

Training includes presentation skills, group work and facilitation.

Trained Peer Leaders are given opportunities to share their success stories and testimonies at SANA’s drug prevention engagement sessions in schools and at outreach talks at prisons, halfway houses, etc.

Participants will use their newly-acquired skills in the following ways:

  1. Sharing testimonies
  2. Contribute to preventive drug education
  3. Dispel negative public perception of ex-offenders

SKILLS UPGRADING

Peer Leaders are offered training to equip them with social skills. This will enable them to find employment and to be economically independent. These include photography, public speaking and presentation.
