The Counseling Department has a Peer Helpers group composed of selected Juniors and Seniors trained and supervised by the BCHS counselors. The purpose of the group is to assist the counseling department by providing fellow students with opportunities for peer guidance and emotional support. Peer Helpers are also trained in the practice of formal peer mediation whereby they actively participate in creating a BCHS community which reflects reduced conflict and increased understanding of differences. Each year, our Peer Helpers also attend the annual Youth Peer Mediation Conference sponsored by the Arizona Association for Conflict Resolution. Applications (including a teacher recommendation) are available in the Spring.
