UB PFC welcomes prospective peer facilitators

The Peer Facilitators Circle (PFC) of the University of Bohol (UB) recently held an orientation for interested students who are interested in being part of the organization last September 21, 2019, at the UB – Instructional Media Center.

The event tackled three topics: Self-Awareness (Mental Health), Effective Communication, and Roles and functions of Peer Facilitators.

Most of the students came from the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), College of Business and Accountancy and SHS. There were also 25 peer facilitators from Manga National High School (MNHS) who attended. The MNHS is an adopted school of the UB-CAS.

The PFC is open to all interested students from the different colleges, including the Senior High School. Presently, 33 students are part of the PFC in UB, and 99 students signified their intention to join the organization this year.

This coming October, the PFC will have their annual live-in training seminar to officially welcome the new peer facilitators.

The PFC is a non-academic venue where students develop their skills and potentials for leadership, social relationship, and inculcate the need and responsibility to help their peers.

It likewise provides opportunities for the students to volunteer their services in assisting their peer students in developing themselves fully by acting as the implementing partners of the guidance counselors. They are screen and trained in their tasks through a seminar-workshop conducted by the guidance counselors every year.

Peer Facilitators serves as an extension arm of the Guidance Center. Therefore, any guidance activities like learning sessions, group counseling, psychological debriefing, and others, will usually see the university’s guidance counselors tap trained peer facilitators.
