Description of Program: The SHARE (Sexual Health And Reproductive Education) peer program serves to increase students' knowledge of contraceptive options, reproductive health, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI's), HIV/AIDS, safer sexual behaviors, testing options, and University Health Center services. SHARE peer educators bring accurate and relevant sexual health messages to the campus community in many ways. In the Health Center, SHARE provides individual and group educational sessions. Presentations are also brought to larger groups, such as: classrooms, residence halls, fraternity and sorority houses, and other campus organizations. Additionally, information is presented to large groups through tabling and other campus outreach events.
Training: A full week of training is generally scheduled the week before classes begin from 9am-5pm daily. Ongoing supervision and training is integrated into the program. Attendance of all training and class sessions is mandatory for the program.
Commitment: Peer Educators earn 3 credits for a one year commitment. The SHARE peer educator group meets weekly (attendance is mandatory) for 1.5 hours. Including the meeting time and presentations, a SHARE Peer Educator can expect to work an average of 3 - 5 hours each week.
Prerequisites: Previous relevant coursework and work or volunteer experience is helpful but not necessary. You must be available to attend training as well as weekly class meetings during the semester.
Application procedure: Applications are closed for the 2013-14 academic year.
Your application will be reviewed, and you may be contacted to set up an individual interview.
