Peer Education Pilot Program | Kent State University

Peer Education Pilot Program

The Office of Sexual and Relationship Violence Support Services is launching a peer education program to help educate students on how to teach their peers how to prevent power based personal violence. Peer Educators complete a semester of training to prepare them to be leaders on campus in educating their peers about topics such as defining consent, sexual violence prevention and bystander intervention, healthy relationships, and survivor support. The Peer Education Program looks for dedicated students who are interested in creating a safe and equitable environment for all members of the Kent State University Community.  

Strong candidates for the Peer Education Program will have some baseline knowledge of the issue of sexual violence on college campuses, as well as public speaking skills. Students should be prepared to dedicate three hours per week throughout the 2016-2017 academic year, and ideally will plan to continue participation into fall 2017.

Required Training Meetings: Wednesday Nights from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM starting October 12th, 2016 through November 30, 2016 .
