Over 40 public and private schools in Baldwin County recently attended the Peer Helpers Jubilee on January 21, 2015, to discuss leadership, anti-bullying tactics, and kindness.

At the Peer Helpers Jubilee, two different nationally known speakers talked about real life situations that happened to them in high school and how just by listening to someone else’s problems, you can help save their life or make it a better day.
One of the speakers was Jessica Brookshire, president and the founder of K.A.R.M.A. (Kids Against Ridicule Meanness and Aggression). As a former Miss Alabama, she visits many different schools to spread awareness to end bullying. This information has helped students become better Peer Helpers.
It was great to see how many Peer Helpers were available to attend the jubilee and show that we do care for the people around us and want to make a difference in our community. With over 1,100 students there, it was great to see that the Peer Helper organization and know that this many students are making a difference in their schools.
