Training and Using Peer Facilitators for Orientation of Students in Secondary Schools.
Mitchell, William F.; And Others
This paper describes the development and operation of a high school orientation program using peer facilitators. The activities of the administrative team (two school social workers, a guidance counselor, and an assistant principal) are described, as is training of upper classmen to be peer facilitators for freshmen orientation. A brief description of the program's implementation is presented along with results of an evaluation of the project; program participants compared to nonparticipants reported less difficulty starting their classes and fewer feelings of isolation. A modified version of the program is suggested for individual transfer students. Finally, other uses for peer facilitators are considered. (MCF)
