Peer Wellness Education

The Peer Wellness Education team supports the physical, emotional and psychological health of students at Laurier by promoting proactive wellness strategies and resources.

Under direction of the wellness education coordinator, peer wellness educators research, develop and deliver a variety of health and wellness initiatives to engage students in learning about healthy living for the enhancement of their academic and personal success.

Volunteer

As part of a dynamic team, volunteers in this program also benefit personally from the development of their knowledge in health and wellness promotion, from building campus and community networks, and by growing their leadership, team and communication skills. Volunteers receive recognition on their Laurier Experience Record.

Hiring for peer wellness educators takes place every year in March with a commitment for the following September through April.

For more information about volunteering, contact Nathan Reeve on the Waterloo campus, or contact Sarah Syrett on the Brantford campus.
