The Santa Clara County Office of Education TUPE Team engages youth in both local and countywide positive youth development opportunities through the Peer Advocate Program.
Peer Advocates are leaders, helpers, influencers, upstanders, and a friend.
This site is designed as a one-stop resource for our TUPE Peer Advocates working to reduce youth tobacco use by informing their peers about the harmful consequences associated with tobacco products. Through being a role model and helping peers become informed, Peer Advocates have the ability to make a huge difference in their peers' lives.
The site will be constantly expanding in order to ensure that the content and information is up to date and supportive to both our Site Coordinators and Peer Advocates.
The Peer Advocate Advisory Council (PAAC) is a youth-centered and directed group of 20 youth that engages in community level advocacy through research, education, communications, and policy. PAAC members meet the first Thursday of each month from 4pm-5:30pm.
