Hi Vernoica,

The Peer Gatekeeper Training Program was described in a Department of Justice-funded evaluation of WORDE's Countering Violent Extremism program (link here: https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/grants/249936.pdf). Page 17 of the evaluation mentions the program: "WORDE launched a 'peer gatekeeper training' program, through its 'Global Citizen’s Forum' whereby it trained high school students on recognizing and assisting
peers who might be experiencing isolation, personal crisis, or bullying (including cyberbullying)."

There does not seem to be any information available about which high schools were involved in this program.

Waqas.
