Peer Educators

Image Caption

The ESU Peer Educators are a diverse group of students who are trained to provide educational programs and outreach on responsible student decision-making towards health, wellness, and safety topics including alcohol, drugs, sexual violence, sexually transmitted infections, and stress management. Peer Education provides a way for students to talk to other students about lifestyle choices with the goal of harm reduction. In other words, peer education allows students to make personal decisions while encouraging and helping them to make those decisions in safer and healthier ways.

The Peer Educators provide programs, information, and resources that empower students to have a greater understanding of themselves, their relationships, and their environment. Peer Educators develop trustful, nonjudgmental connections with students in order to support them in reducing risks in their behavioral choices.

Our trained Peer Educators are ready to present any of our programs to NCAA and Club Sport Teams, Greek Organizations, clubs, academic classes, residence halls, and anyone else who may be interested. To request our peer educators, please email Alyson at apatascher@esu.edu. If there is a program that does not fit your needs please let us know, and we would be glad to create a program to fit your educational needs!
