The Peer Educator program is a student-run health promotion initiative for undergraduate students overseen by the Student Wellness Centre’s Education team. Each year, Peer Educators develop and implement proactive health-related interventions to enhance campus well-being on one of five Wellness Outreach Teams: Active Living, Food Literacy, Mental Health, Sexual Health, and Substance Use.
Wellness Outreach Peer Educators are responsible for delivering workshops, providing evidence-based health information, and promoting wellness-related resources available on and off campus.They receive comprehensive training on our five wellness topic areas as well as leadership, communication, health promotion, health equity, and more. Students on our Wellness Outreach Teams are ambitious, proactive, and driven toward making a difference on campus.
Wellness Outreach Teams are lead by Team Leads, returning Peer Educators who have demonstrated significant contribution to their teams. They have a personal commitment to improving their own wellness and advocating for the wellness of others.
