Peer Power
Program Description

PEER POWER looks at Boston-area teenagers who are successfully coping with critical issues in their lives - including sexuality, AIDS, substance abuse and interpersonal violence - by working with other teens as trained peer leaders. The program focuses on three model teen-to-teen training programs: The Adolescent Life Options Program at the Roxbury Comprehensive Community Health Center, CASPAR (The Cambridge and Somerville Program for Alcohol Rehabilitation) and the "You Can't Be Beat" theater troupe, located at Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School, which is part of a dating violence intervention project co-sponsored by EMERGE, a center for men who batter women and Transition House, a shelter for battered women and their children
