Explanation: In my humble opinion I think 'positive peer power' has to do with group influence. The text seems to suggest that the organization is trying to leverage from the influence members of the group has on each other, turning that influence into a positive one to steer young people in the right direction. So, I would translate that particular term(s) as "gera influência positiva de grupo". Therefore it is a little more than 'companheirismo,' it is the positive influence of 'companheirismo.'
Explanation: Como Assistente Social que sou há 30 anos e trabalhando nos Estados Unidos há 15 posso dizer que o termo técnico usado para "peer positive power" é "reforço positivo de grupo" que é a força exercida pelo grupo reforçando um comportamento positivo e não "companheirismo" que dá a idéia de relacionamento social sem consequencias.
