Peer Educators

Students in this group plan and implement health campaigns on a variety of topics in the Five Areas of Life. They also plan and deliver educational presentations all over campus on these same issues. This includes teaching about substance use/abuse; stress management; travel safety; healthy relationships and sexual health, which focuses on making value and principle based decisions, STD information, and date/acquaintance rape information; and much more. Volunteers are asked to attend a weekly team meeting to talk about upcoming events, make plans, and prepare for presentations. Volunteers are able to commit anywhere from 2 hours a week to as many as they would like. In addition, an extended two day training once a year is also attended. To apply to be a peer educator, stop by our office located at the Student Health and Wellness Center, and pick up an application.
