The Peer Educator Program at the Center for Counseling and Personal Growth provides peer-led psychoeducational learning experiences for the Clark University student community.
Peer Educators are committed to teaching skills that will help students to reduce the potential for distressful life experiences. Students who serve as Peer Educators at CPG help the Clark community by:
- Providing consultation services to various students groups
- Developing and delivering workshops/training sessions covering a variety of mental health topics
- Marketing the services of the counseling center to the campus community
- Assisting CPG staff with outreach programming
- Assessing need of the student body regarding mental health issues
- Helping to manage the social media and other various forms of communication from the counseling center
As part of the Peer Educator Internship, students will meet on a weekly basis and receive credit for the internship experience. In addition to receiving group supervision regarding their programming and outreach projects, students will also engage in a didactic experience that provides education and training to help increase social, self-management, and helping skills.
In order to become a Peer Educator at CPG, a student must have taken the SSN training or have completed the Peer Assistance class in the Psychology Department. If you are interested in becoming a Peer Educator, please email CPG Assistant Director, Marcia Galvinhill.
