CAPS Peer Educators are dynamic, positive individuals who are ready to make a significant contribution to the campus community. The Peer Educator program requires a higher level of skill, experience and commitment than the volunteer program. Peer Educators take a more active role in CAPS services through co-facilitating workshops and a group, taking the lead in outreach projects, and receiving more supervision and training. They also participate in general volunteer meetings, trainings, and activities in addition to their peer educator responsibilities. Because of the additional time, training, and experience required, our peer educator program is considered an internship.
At this time, we anticipate having two Peer Educator positions open for the 2013-2014 Academic Year. Applicants must have completed at least one semester as a CAPS volunteer to be eligible to apply.
“I love being a CAPS peer educator because I get to learn more about my future career. I have also done plenty of outreach; which leads me to believe that I could be making a difference in someone's life." —Jessica Levin, Peer Educator
