Peer Mentor Training Online has been designed for individuals who have been pre-screened by one of the SCI Canada Federation member organizations. It is a training program for people who will be volunteering as Peer Mentors within their communities.
Peer Support programs across the Spinal Cord Injury Canada Federation are at the heart of what we do. Peer Support mentors are people who have "been there; done that" and who can share their lived experiences. Peer mentors are people with spinal cord injuries and family members, too.
Through completion of this course, participants will learn about their role and responsibilities as Peer Mentors, the procedures they must follow as volunteers, and strategies they can use to establish positive, productive relationships with their peers.
