Peer-Led Life Skill Training – An Impactful Initiative in Communities

Depending on the interest of the volunteer and his/her communication skill, children were selected for the role of peer facilitator. The group of peer facilitators is then trained to understand and communicate the knowledge to their peers effectively.


Know Yourself, Know Your Emotion, and Know Your Dream are some of the fundamental sessions that acquaint facilitators with their own strengths and goals. In the second phase of the training session, facilitators are guided on curating their training aids, planning a session and eventually conducting successful sessions for their peers.

One such fun, activity-led session is the Know Your Dream session.

Here, the peer facilitator asks the participants to draw a picture of themselves standing on the ground and write their goal right up in the clouds. They’re then asked to draw a long ladder between the ground up to the goal in the clouds. Every step on the ladder is considered an actionable step towards the goal, i.e., they’re required to write down the small steps they will be taking to achieve the goal.

With this exercise, not only does the dream transform into an achievable goal, but the life skills of critical thinking, problem solving, and decision-making also get imprinted in the minds of children.
