Peer Counselors Support Students, Need Your Support
Peer Counseling is a unique and innovative program at Wilson that trains students to be an additional resource to their peers. Peer counselors are available by appointment and drop-in and hold special events throughout the year to help fellow students find their niche, deal with social problems, and manage the daily challenges of high school life. They're hoping for your support now to help them reach their goal of $2,000 to help pay for the costs of training and events for next year. Learn more about the Peer Counseling program here, or go directly to their GoFundMe page to make a donation.
