img_8063

What: We are here to SUPPORT STUDENTS! We meet with students and conduct individual sessions, mediations, and assist our counselors. By utilizing our peer counseling skills, we are here to support students with any issues they may be experiencing.

Where: We can be found in the Counseling Center in the Counseling Conference Room.

When: We are available every day during school hours, but you need to complete a blue Advanced Peer Mediator Request Form, so that we may call you out.

How: Simply fill out the blue Advanced Peer Mediator Request Form in the Counseling Center and put it in our APM Advisor’s (Ms. Mamaril’s ) box (outside her office). Then, an APM will try to get in contact with you.

**The Advanced Peer Mediators do not replace certified professionals, but are extensions of guidance services; when necessary, they direct students to the appropriate counselor or approved community resources for further assistance.
