What is "PeerUp!"?
PeerUp! is a pilot program where youth who have been in foster care the opportunity to connect with peers, peer leaders and community members acting as volunteer PeerUp! mentors, while building knowledge and skills for life success! At weekly meetings, youth and volunteers will go on adventures, learn and laugh together, and discover new skills along the way.
