Peer education builds on the idea that students learn best from their peers, especially about difficult or uncomfortable topics. Peer Educators are trained by the HOPE professional staff to engage their peers in relevant and relatable discussions on issues of health and wellness. Peer educators are trained in specific topic areas such as mental health, sexual health, alcohol & other drugs, and nutrition. Each program has its own requirements, application, and training process. Visit each website to learn more about the unit.
If you have questions regarding any of the Peer Education programs, please contact HOPE at 848-932-1965.
