Student peer educators are motivated individuals, just like you, who are well-trained and lead organized educational activities by delivering presentations and participating in campus events. Peer educators are leaders and role models who work collaboratively to make a difference on campus and within the greater community by raising awareness on current issues that affect our society. By becoming a peer educator, you will be able to explore and learn about a particular issue that best suits your personal or career interests. For more information on each program, please visit The BLUES Project, Project D.A.T.E., JADE or MenCARE.
There are many advantages to being a peer educator.
- Enhance your resume or graduate school application

- Become a part of a peer education team
- Make friends, make memories and have fun!
- Receive priority registration
As a peer educator, you will be able to:
- Boost your public speaking, communication and presentation skills.
- Provide accurate information by gaining in-depth knowledge of a particular issue.
- Be able to help others and respond non-judgmentally.
- Respect individual differences.
You can make a difference as a peer educator by:
- Delivering presentations to classes, clubs and organizations, and/or the community at large, and raising awareness on vital societal issues.
