Peer Educators

We are now taking your questions! We’re looking for students and young adults to send us questions and our peer educators will answer them. Our peer educators are youth who volunteer with us at Tubman who have been trained through our Movement for Violence Prevention youth leadership group. They are looking forward to engaging with you by hearing what you’d like more information about and answering your questions. You can ask specific questions, use examples, ask about general themes, or request further info and resources. Email us at teens@tubman.org or contact us through our social media sites with your questions.

New Newsletters

This week we will be sending out our quarterly Movement for Violence Prevention newsletter created for and by youth and young adults. If you would like to receive a copy of our digital newsletter, please email us at teens@tubman.org. If you are interested in contributing to upcoming newsletters, we’d love to hear from you as well! We love to feature pieces by young people, and we’re looking for any of the following:

  • Opinion pieces about issues/social movements
  • Experiences you’d like to share (personal, professional, or in the community)
  • Recommendations (books, movies, TV, podcasts)
  • Poetry, art, or short stories that you’ve created
  • Advertisements for events you are a part of or have organized
