Peer Educators

Peer EducatorsWho we are
The Peer Educators are students specially trained to communicate with young people about well-being and responsibility. We are supervised by the Director and Associate Director of Counseling.
 

What we do
The Peer Educators lead educational programs designed to foster responsible attitudes and behavior. Our topics cover a range of physical and mental health issues with an emphasis on substance abuse. We also serve as resource persons to individuals seeking information for personal or academic reasons.

Who we serve

In addition to our main programs for Berry Students, we lead programs at local schools (grades K-12), colleges, hospitals, church youth groups and any other group where young
people gather to grow and learn. There is no fee for our services.

Contact Information:

The easiest way to contact us is through our email: peereducators@berry.edu. On campus, our extension is 2379. Off campus, calls can be directed through the Counseling Center at 706.236.2259. Our office and resource room are in room 13 in the Ladd Center, near the counseling wing. If you want us to plan your programming, please contact us in advance of your desired date.
 

Past program topics include:

  • Drunk Driving
  • Substance Abuse and Addiction
  • College Student Mental Health Awareness
  • Stress
  • Racism and Prejudice
  • Eating Disorders
  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases
  • Dating and Relationships
  • Sexual Harassment and Assault
  • Nutrition and Exercise
  • Study Habits
  • Body Image
  • Gender and the Media

Each year, the Peer Educators reach well over a thousand students with their programs. The Peer Educators also survey students to determine on campus attitudes about certain issues affecting the community.

The Peer Educators are members of the national BACCHUS/GAMMA Peer Education Network which is a community based network focused on health and safety initiatives among colleges and universities across the United States. In the last decade, the Peer Educators have been awarded the outstanding area chapter award numerous times.

The Peer Educator Resource Room has books, scientific journals and brochures on many topics, especially drug and alcohol abuse. Please stop by the Resource Room in the Ladd Center to see what we have. All of our holdings are also included in the library's electronic catalog WebVoyage.
