Apply to be a Peer Educator with Well-Woman!

Interested in health and wellness, advocacy and activism, and building community? Apply to be a peer educator with Well-Woman!

Peer Educator Application 2017

Peer Educators are specially trained Barnard students who volunteer to provide information, conduct outreach, engage in advocacy, and develop creative and effective strategies to promote and support health and wellness. Well-Woman is committed to training and supporting a diverse group of peer educators able to respond with sensitivity and openness to the needs of the Barnard community. Applications are due Monday April 3rd by 4pm. Please note that all peer educators must be available for training from Monday August 28th through Friday September 1st.

So, what do WW peer educators do? They staff evening office hours in our center (times when students can drop-in to ask questions, check out the office, get tea, and just relax in our comfy space), write for our blog, liaise with RAs and student groups, develop events, facilitate workshops, attend weekly meetings with Well-Woman staff, help with events like our annual cupcake decorating and milk tasting (coming up in May!), host our weekly craft club, act as “IUDoulas” for students getting an IUD, table in the Diana, serve as wellness resources for the student body, and much more!

Any questions? Stop by during staff or peer ed office hours or send us an email (jcannon@barnard.edu).  Thanks!
