About

Peer Leadership is comprised of a group of students who have identified social issues in their community and want to tackle them head on. These issues include gender based violence, mental health, racism, social media and technology,  alcohol and other drug education, and much, much more. As Peer Leaders they are change agents by creating presentations, videos, media campaigns, and group discussions for Brookline community members. Whether they are leading discussions in the middle schools or presenting at PTO meetings, Peer Leaders are working hard to create a safe and healthy community for all Brookline Youth.
