This program consists of a two-semester commitment and is designed to prepare students to become peer educators of sexual health. Sexual health peer educators will present educational programs to students on WMU’s campus as well as local high schools and community colleges. Sexual health presentations cover a number of issues and topics pertaining to the elements of healthy intimate relationships including healthy communication, common risky behaviors of college students, prevalent sexually transmitted infections and methods of protection, and available methods of contraception.
This program works with a variety of departments and qualifies as credit for field placement, practicum, internship, and general elective credit. Time commitment ranges from 6 to 10 hours per week and many of the program commitments are flexible and designed around your schedule. Involvement in this experience offers a number of rewards for successfully completing your two-semester commitment including earning a national certification as a peer educator, letters of recommendations and references for both employment and graduate school as well as extensive networking opportunities around campus.
