Peers to Allies

Peers to Allies is a violence prevention program that situates leadership, bystander intervention, and social justice education as the cornerstones for student engagement. UIC student leaders attend a three night camping retreat where they participate in workshops, interactive activities, and facilitated dialogues. Through our evidence-based curriculum, leaders develop a deeper self-awareness that increases their ability to recognize signs of interpersonal violence and learn practical bystander intervention skills; all while making meaningful connections with other student leaders from the UIC community.
