Peer Partnerships

Peers are a critical component to the GNO program. Peer models are needed to help participants learn and practice new skills during age appropriate social and self-care activities. Peers model appropriate skills, learn how to promote social interactions and play a big role in helping empower girls with developmental disabilities reach their goals!
