Youth peer support is a relatively new up and coming thing for most of us, and it has already accomplished many great things!
For instance, in several communities across Kentucky, Drop-In-Centers have been opened. Communities such as Louisville, Morehead, and Ashland. These centers provide a safe place for young people to go, to engage with like-minded people, and to receive the help that they need. Even if help is not needed, it is the perfect place for social support and interaction. It is the perfect way for young people to feel valued in their community, and to gain the tools they need to thrive in life, and give back to their community.
I would like to ask all Youth Leaders to please spread the word in your community. Speak with your local stakeholders and request these services in your area. The more they know about these great services, the more they will be willing to support the cause.
I would also like to request any Youth Leaders who are not Youth Peer Support Specialists to please consider joining, we are always looking for more valuable members in our movement.

1940s (fabric was needed during WW2, this was actually a way to produce swim suits with less materials. It also symbolized a more “liberated” look in celebration after the war was over, therefore the look stayed)
