Outriggers

Learn About What Outriggers Does!

Watch our promo video below:


out·rig·ger [definition]-a framework extended outboard from the side of a boat; supporting a float that gives stability.

Just like the definition of an “outrigger” states, Outrigger Peer Educators are dedicated to helping others maintain balance and improve all aspects of their organization. Outriggers Peer Educators work by request to develop individualized programs catered to the particular desires of the organization in need.  Requesting Outriggers is a great opportunity to mix up your weekly meeting or add to trainings, retreats, etc. Outriggers provide the opportunity for organizations to recognize and fulfill their own highest potential. Ultimately, Outrigger Peer Educators are “Peers Helping Peers Help Themselves.”

Here’s how it works:

  1. 1. Fill out the Program Request Sheet and return it in person to Madison Union 320B or via email at outriggers@jmu.edu.or fill out the following form online:Online Outriggers Program Request Sheet We can’t wait to work with you!
