Outriggers


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:
