Network Spotlight: The Peer Coordinator Model

In September 2010 the first class of peer coordinators was trained at CASA of Maricopa County, AZ. As of December 31, 2013 a total of 428 peer coordinators nationwide were actively supporting volunteer advocates. They are coaching, guiding and mentoring advocates across the county. 2015 is shaping up to be a “break out” year for the use of the peer coordinator model in the network.

Over the last year several programs using the peer coordinator model have initiated internal reviews, evaluations, and surveys of their successes and challenges with the model.

Read their results and reflections on the model in this new article.
