PEER YOUTH EDUCATORS
Peers are a very important part of Identity, and they help the center to run smoothly by interacting with both the staff and the youth. They are always more than happy to be a friend to lean on or an open mind to hear your thoughts. If you are unsure of something or uncomfortable, the Peers are always people you can trust to come to and be open and honest with.
Serving as a positive role model to other teen participants and bringing in new participants when possible, Peers also ensure the inclusion of first time participants and help them integrate into Identity. Peers will help with the planning, creation of, and presentation of events and discussion topics aimed at Identity participants.

Hi everyone! Ny name is Bellamy, I'm a junior at Binghamton University
and I'm majoring in Biochemistry. I know I look 16 but I'm actually
20, I swear. I grew up in Fishkill, NY but live in Jacksonville, FL
now which a lot of people find really surprising because I'm so pale!
I play 3 instruments, enjoy true crime documentaries, and my favorite
genre is horror. I'm also a great listener so if you ever need to talk
or rant, just let me know!
