Our Peer Educators benefited from a Two Day Training Workshop which was facilitated by Dr.Wilson.

On June 7, 2021 the Peer Educators who also functions as Mentors participated in a Mentorship training, this enabled them to have a better understanding of how to lead and be great mentors to their mentees.
On June 8, 2021 the entire Peer Ed core were engaged in the last session which focused on Effective Communication for Mutually Satisfying Relationships.
Both sessions were fruitful and questions and concerns raised where thoroughly addressed.

We would like to thank the organizers from the department for identifying the importance of these sessions and having them executed.
A special thanks to Dr. Joy Wilson for always delivering exceptionally.
