The mission of Peer2Peer is to match one trained Temple volunteer with a member who is facing difficult life challenges. Through a one-on-one relationship, the congregant in need gains valuable support from a peer to help identify and resolve key troubling issues and implement solutions.
With one-to-one support, the peer learns how to identify issues, devise solutions, and implement them in a way that sustains support on an ongoing basis.
In general, here’s how it works: with permission of the member in need, one of Wilshire Boulevard Temple’s clergy will match the member to a peer support person. While the pairing is not intended as a replacement for professional therapy, it is designed to create a relationship that can bring a person in need some help, healing, and joy.
Our peer support people receive training; most of all, they are good listeners, empathetic, and supportive.
To become a peer support person, contact Hannah Gole at (424) 208-8932. Training sessions are held two weekends every six months, and attendance at both is required.
