VPVA Peer Educator Application

 
The Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance (VPVA) is looking for students interested in helping to create a campus community free from violence. Peer Educators are students who are committed to supporting survivors of interpersonal violence and working to engage other students in stopping violence before it happens.  
 
Through the use of bystander intervention strategies, we will all work together to stop violence and the attitudes and behaviors that allow violence to occur. 
 
Peer Educators will help spread awareness of VPVA services as well as receive the opportunity to specialize in promotion, social media, program development, and other leadership roles. We are seeking responsible, confident and creative students. Peer Educators should feel comfortable speaking in front of peers and leading challenging discussions. 
 
Peer Educators will be compensated at $11.00 an hour. 
 
Responsibilities:
· Participate in mandatory VPVA training on topics including interpersonal violence, bystander intervention and facilitator skills
· Create and facilitate workshop content for peers 
· Work with VPVA staff on prevention initiatives
· Commit to bystander intervention in your personal lives
