Peer Communities (PC) are groups of staff who come together around a shared interest in or affinity with a particular membership, program, or service area. Staff who participate in peer communities seek to share knowledge, learn, and innovate with each other.
PEER COMMUNITY STRUCTURE (Chapter 41)
Chapter 41 has chosen to structure Peer Communities in three (3) neighborhoods in our Alliance:
Northwest Region: Camp Jorn, Camp Manito-wish, Chippewa Valley, La Crosse, Marshfield, Northwoods, South Wood County, Stevens Point, Superior-Douglas, Woodson
Northeast Region: Door County, Fond du Lac, Fox Cities, Green Bay, Marquette County, Northern Lights, Manitowoc-Two Rivers, Marinette-Menominee, Oshkosh, Sheboygan
Southeast Region: Dane County, Dodge County, Geneva Lakes, Glacial Community, Green County, Kettle Moraine, Milwaukee, Northern Rock, Phantom Lake Camp, Racine, Stateline, Waukesha County
Each PC has it's own Statewide Leader, then within each neighborhood Peer Community is a Neighborhood Leader. These staff are responsible for ensuring communication and networking happens throughout the state.

Any full or part time employee of a Y can join a Peer Community. It's free! Generally speaking, new full time management staff are automatically added to the YPN Peer Community once they are hired. Your local HR department takes care of that!
