Class Limit
There is a 12 person Class limit.

Class/Group Format
Each session will start with a 1.25 hour Peer Support group, made up of the students in the class. Students are encouraged to bring up their own issues and challenges within their own recovery and life, and to practice group participation and facilitation. The rest of the class time will deal with our PSS curriculum. As the calendar progresses, we will hear from a variety of learned and experienced peers and professionals who will assist us with some of the important aspects of group facilitation, motivational interviewing, harm reduction, passion development, and other tools to help our future clients. Here is the flyer for the class. Click here to complete the application
