Peer facilitators trained for better service to students


Peer facilitators have been equipped to be of better service to their fellow students through a training conducted by the Guidance and Counseling Services (GCS & IOS) and Information and Services at the UNP Guestel on April 19, 2024.

The activity focused on orienting the peer facilitators about their responsibilities and roles and developing in them a deeper sense of service. It also aimed to enhance their listening and assisting skills to link with other students.
