Best Buddies and Peer Mentor Programs

   

CORSE has designed various peer mentor programs within the SPS school district and to enhance our own social development and recreation programming. 

CORSE currently provides the following initiatives in regards to peer mentoring:

  • High School Best Buddies (click here for info)
  • Gates Best Buddies (click here for info)
  • Elementary Best Buddies Grades K-2 (click here for info)
  • Elementary Best Buddies Grades 3-5 (click here for info)
  • CORSE has also designed customized peer mentor opportunities particularly for our after-school and summer social skills programs.  This is a model that mentors older grade-level students to assist with these programs in working with the students to reinforce and model the social skills taught in that curriculum.
  • Customized peer mentor training (every summer) and the student training manual are also provided for our recreation programs to assure the counselors and volunteers have the necessary training and support to effectively assist the students in the programs. 

For 2018, these programs have been generously supported by grant funding received from the Harold Brooks Trust, John W. Alden Trust, Edwin Phillips Foundation, Scituate Rotary Club, South Shore Playhouse Associates as well as our community fundraising supporters.
