How do I see a Peer Facilitator?

How do I become a Peer Facilitator?
Applications are available in the School Counseling Office in January, February and March. Interested students may apply in the Spring of their Sophomore or Junior year. Students must complete an application with a letter of recommendation. Students must have a 2.5 GPA or better.
