Peer Leadership

Peer Leadership brings LUK’s Positive Youth Development Philosophy to life! With the support of staff, youth in Peers for Prevention work to prevent risky behaviors among their peers. With presentations and activities, youth leaders model healthy choices and encourage their peers to do the same.
