Students most often seek out their friends when they are experiencing frustrations, worries or concerns. Naturally, these friends wish to help them, yet they often do not know how to do it or what to do. The Peer Help programme has been developed to train and supervise students in refining their natural helping skills. Students are trained and supervised to provide listening, understanding and support to fellow students (their peers). They have opportunities to put this training into practice by providing assistance to other students in decision-making around life-style enhancement, career development, and academic success. With the assistance of peer helpers, students are empowered to deal with loneliness, academic skills, career related issues, HIV/AIDS, employability and other issues that may interfere with their joy, development and learning.
