H.O.P.E Mission Statement
As H.O.P.E. Peer Educators, we are committed to “Helping Our Peers Excel” by offering education and support that promotes overall wellness, responsible decision making, academic success and advancing the common good for our campus community. Through creative peer-to-peer discussions as well as campus events, we strive to inspire others to discover “not only how to make a living, but how to live”.
Peer educators receive training on a variety of topics and are available to present in classroom settings, in residance halls, and to athletic teams or other campus groups. Presentations strive to be interactive and are 30-40 minutes in length. Our peer educators are prepared to present on the following topics:
- College adjustment and homesickness
- Anxiety and stress management
- Depression and positive coping skills
- Healthy relationships
- Interpersonal relationships
- Self-esteem and body image
- Responsible alcohol choices
If you are interested in having a H.O.P.E. presentation in your class or for your group, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate 2 weeks notice. Please understand we may have limitations on availability based on our own peer educators’ class schedules.
