The purpose of Drug Education and "The Way to Happiness" is to show that true happiness and satisfaction in life come from pursuing ones goals and being part of making the world a better place. The Peer Leader Training course is offered as a way to learn techniques that can be used to uplift others. Three ‘assists’ are learnt. These are simple techniques that can make one feel healthier, happier, more alert, alive and extroverted. As part of the course they have to apply each of these assists to three friends or family members and have that person write down what they got out of it. Upon successful completion they receive a certificate and a badge that can be worn on their uniform.

A "Havingness Assist" is a way of increasing a person’s confidence in their ability.
Upon completion of the practical we ask the students to write down what they got out of the course. Here are some responses:
