AUROVILLE PEER EDUCATION TRAINING
A network of currently 34 members and growing!
Auroville Peer Education Trainings (APET) are part of a global network initiated by the UNFPA, using the ‘YPEER’ training methodology which we have adapted to the Auroville context. Through one week Auroville Peer Education Trainings (APET) we create an Auroville Peer Education Network (APEN) for peer-peer awareness and support on difficult topics such as drugs, gender, depression, taboo topics, etc. with the support of a larger network of professional experts in Auroville.
Target audience: 16 to 33 years old, resident - Auroville and bioregional youth.
Followed by, APETOT: Training of Trainers
When we have enough active peer educators we will conduct an additional one week training for those who wish to become APET Facilitators – these young adults could then be invited to global Y-PEER gatherings!
