Peer Resource Program at Saint John's

The Peer Resource Program (PRP) seeks to enhance the personal development of the CSB/SJU community. An extension of Saint John's Arboretum, PRP focuses on leadership development by integrating elements such as healthy risk-taking, trust, awareness, wellness, and self-growth into both formal and non-traditional settings. To this end, the PRPs host programs including wilderness trips, Collegebound, and a variety of on and off-campus events throughout the year. In addition, the PRPs are trained to facilitate the low-elements Challenge Course which provides groups with an opportunity to examine themselves in terms of leadership, teamwork, problem-solving, and communication. The Peer Resource Program helps new student groups, challenges and aids in the development of existing groups, and encourages individual growth. PRP members are CSB/SJU students who receive continuous training in facilitation, listening, leadership, communication, and group dynamics.
