This study aims to improve students’ prosocial behavior through life skills-based peer counseling. The research method was used experimentally, the design of the pretest-posttest control group involving one counselor as a peer counseling program supervisor, five students as peer counselors, and ten students as the experimental group and the control group. The experimental group used base life skills, while the control group did not use base life skills. The results of this study indicate that students who receive assistance from life skills-based peer counseling prove to be more effective than students who get help from conventional peer counseling.
