Peer Health Education
Understanding health as a multi-dimensional, self-defined, and values-based concept, the Bates Peer Health Educators will work to systematically improve the health of themselves, their peers, and the broader Bates community through peer-to-peer, staff-trained and supported, health promotion interventions. We know that there are many visions of and ways to improve health, and so at the core of this program must be inclusion, equity, and diversity. This is an invitation to call everyone into conversations about health and wellness, and we thoroughly look forward to working with all interested students.
General Topics: mental health, sexual health, healthy relationships, substance use, power based violence prevention, and resilience
Time Commitment: 1 hour/week for group meetings, and 5 hours per semester outside of that, planned around your own schedule.
