We are looking for volunteers who believe students have the power to make a positive change in their communities.


PeerForward transforms the lives of young people from low-income communities by developing teams of high school students who use influence and community organizing to lead their peers to higher education and careers. Our high school Peer Leaders will connect 122,000 students to postsecondary success in the next four years. You can help train these Peer Leaders at our Summer Workshops.

This summer, you can make an impact in just four days.
