Role of the Advisor
The role of the school-based advisor is to help students foster healthy and constructive peer relationships, out-of-school and at home, as well as being a liaison between students and the administration in the school.
Assign an advisor when putting together a peer group and utilizing the Pennsylvania Middle School Bullying Prevention Toolkit. If no advisor is available within the school, you can contact organizations outside of the school to support your school and the group. One suggestion is Be the Change PA.
Adults play an important role in the healthy development of our youth and ultimately the success of our communities – they inspire students to learn, help them be more resilient, and keep them safe and supported.
