    15. 15. Be Proactive Why Peer Helping? Peer helping is effective as prevention or intervention strategy related to social problems. Begin with the End in Mind What are our most pressing needs? What are our measurable goals? Put First Things First How will we select our Peer Helpers? How will they be identified? What activities will they be involved in? What materials/supplies do I need? What is my budget? Think Win/Win How will I train our Peer Helpers? What activities will facilitate group bonding?
    16. 16. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood Where will I get professional development as a Counselor/Teacher Facilitator? How will we pursue administration/faculty buy-in? Synergize Who on the faculty might be willing to co- facilitate? Is feeder pattern student training an option? Utilize NAPPP resources at www.peerprogramprofessionals.org Sharpen the Saw Peer Helping begins in the heart? What will I do to keep the fire burning?
