Founded in 2007, the PEERS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to empower young people to build healthy and successful lives through innovative and interactive learning programs
Developing and building highly engaging educational events is crucial to the success of the PEERS Foundation. Given the short-term nature of our programs, it’s critical that they elicit the necessary introspection on behalf of the participants. We work tirelessly to ensure that every event features the latest technology exhibited in novel ways, from our award-winning augmented reality technology to our hard-hitting mobile interactive museums, our interventions are designed to impact and help participants make the right choices.
We recognize that the volume of participants who experience our events provides us with a unique opportunity to enact lasting social change. As such, we are dedicated to ensuring our experiences maximize the impact they have when they engage a participant.
We use detailed perception and knowledge studies to determine the impact our events have on participants. With that said, we are constantly developing new and exciting technologies to evaluate the level of engagement participants have while experiencing all phases of our events.
We also recognize the impact that new and evolving social media outlets provide, and we utilize these platforms when appropriate to further spread our message and reach.
We are truly grateful for our partners, both large and small. From the countless individual donations to the local partnerships in communities hosting our events, we thank you. We’ve had national, social issue tours sponsored by companies like State Farm Insurance, GM AT&T, and Toyota Motors. We would like to thank each one for their support!
Support for the PEERS Foundation has lead to over 1.6 million interactions with our programs over the last decade. With continued support from partners big and small alike, we look forward to challenging today’s youth to make the right choices for years to come.

A very important rate case with Consumers Energy is currently before the MI Public Service Commission. This case (U-20697) will determine what the new ‘net-metering’ credit will be for homeowners and business that sell extra solar generated electricity back to Consumers. Under the current law established in 2008, the amount that a homeowner would receive was the retail rate at around 15 cents per kWh. But under the new law enacted in 2016, each utility in Michigan must go through a MPSC rate case to establish a new amount, called the Distributed Energy Tariff.More

We’ve only had smartphone technology for a little over a decade and yet about 36 percent of the worldwide population is using it. We use it for just about everything, everyday. We talk, text, listen to music, play games, learn, and photograph practically everything we do. With over five million apps available between Android and Apple, there’s not much they can’t be used for. We’re even using apps to monitor our health and communicate with our doctors. At this point, it’s safe to say, most of us can no longer imagine our lives without our personal devices.More
