National Association of Peer Program Professionals

The National Association of Peer Program Professionals (NAPPP) was established after the dissolution of The National Association of Peer Programs, originally founded in 1984 as the National Peer Helpers Association. NAPPP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation whose mission is to help adults establish, train, supervise, maintain and evaluate peer programs. Using the NAPPP Programmatic Standards and Ethics as a guiding principle, NAPPP helps adults through networking, leadership training, certification and programmatic problem solving.

NAPPP is dedicated to promoting excellence in peer programs. Its membership is adult professionals who are responsible for peer programs. Since peer programs currently exist in schools, social service agencies, faith communities, geographic communities, nursing homes and youth organizations, the NAPPP membership is composed of representatives from many populations. The largest representation of NAPPP members is from the K-12 school and higher education population.
