Students helping students; Peer Advisors popping up on campus

by Laura Pichler 18 views0

Canyons Peer Advisors are a group of students created to help other students at College of the Canyons. The idea originally started at UCLA, where they found that peers helping peers might be a useful idea to make advice and information more accessible to young people.

The Canyons Peer Advisors assist students through an array of activities such as giving directions, explaining the college’s different programs and services, or helping them reach their educational goal.

To be able to do so, CPA’s go through a five-weeks training and weekly meeting to ensure that the information and instructions they give is always up to date.

CPA’s have five different mobile stations at the Valencia and the Canyon County campuses as well as a steady spot in the administration building at the Valencia campus.
