Saint Peter's University Peer Educators: Service, Outreach, Support (SOS)Saint Peter's University Peer Educators are concerned about the safety and well-being of the student community. Their main purpose is to learn, educate and promote individual and community wellness, by providing and supporting programs that help to increase awareness about a variety of mental health issues. Some of the issues that may affect college students include depression, suicide, alcohol and drug use, sexual assault, self-esteem, academic struggles, building healthy relationships, and coping with stress. Peer Educators work closely with Counseling and Psychological Services and serve as positive role models and advocates to the Saint Peter's University community. Students involved in this program receive multiple trainings and workshops to help them support, identify and disseminate information regarding At-Risk students. Peer Educators benefit from the experience by developing skills that will help them throughout their lives.
