Each year TCNJ ADEP, with the generous support of the New Jersey Division of Highway and Traffic Safety, hosts the Peer Institute, a conference for peer educators (PEs) throughout the state. Across three days, the PEs see a variety of presentations from advisers to PE groups, industry professionals, motivational speakers, and more all with the goal of earning national Bacchus Gamma Peer Educator Certification. Along the way they are given the chance to bond with peers from other schools, plan and implement new and innovative programming, showcase their talents (PE based or not!) and more.
Recap of our 2017 Conference:
The 2017 Peer Institute was a great success! We were fortunate to have nearly 100 peer educators from 8 different programs join us at TCNJ for three days of learning, development, and sharing.
On day three, we always invite high school peer educators to join us for our keynote speaker, lunch, and presentations given by the college participants. This year, five college groups presented! All of the presentations were a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by our high school participants.
Thank you to all who made Peer Institute possible! We’ll see you next year!
