Trenton PEERS (MillHill)

Trenton PEERS (Performing, Educating, and Engaging about Responsible Strategies) is a year-round leadership program preparing Trenton Central High School students to become PEER educators, graduate high school on time, and enter postsecondary education. The college prep focus ensures that all participants have a plan for their pathways after high school 

It involves peer education and mentoring via performed skits about responsible choices for elementary/middle schools. Weekly meetings provide academic and social support while developing leadership and life skills. Students may be eligible for a stipend based on their participation/attendance.

Trenton PEERS is a program by the MillHill Child and Family Development Center.
