FTZ A secondary school professor thinks that peer violence has become very frequent topic lately, and that unfortunately there are more and more cases where students are being abused by other students. It is very important to continuously work on prevention of peer violence, with the goal to develop consciousness among young people on importance of identifying and timely response to cases of peer violence. However, there are a lot of talks, not much work, and discussion on this topic usually turn to a boring lecturing.

The importance of education of young people by their peers should be especially stressed. The workshops on prevention of peer violence conducted by young volunteers thrilled the secondary school students. These workshops were useful, children were able to learn many things and better effects are achieved when students hear some things from their peers.
