  • Helping peers make a behavior change
  • Listening skills, response and referral skills
  • How to take action and intervene
  • Recognizing the role of diversity and inclusivity
  • Programming and presentation skills, self-care, and group dynamics

These are skills that employers are looking for and will help boost your resume.

After a student passes the course, they will receive a Certified Peer Educator certification and a letter of recommendation.
