Dear HEROES Applicants,
Thank you for your interest
in becoming a Peer Health Educator. This is exciting and worthwhile work; and
it is wonderful to see so much interest from potential new members.
HEROES is made up of
students who complete Health Education trainings, and who continue to learn on
a regular basis.
Here’s the application process in a nutshell:
Complete the entire application
Your application will be reviewed by the HEREOS President, Vice
President and Advisor.
You will receive a phone call in order to schedule an interview
within 1 week of application submission.
The interview consists of a series of questions from our current
HEROES members. Although new HEROES members
may not be fully educated on the health topics HEROES addresses, they will be
expected to attend weekly meetings, bi-weekly trainings and presentations until
we feel comfortable with relying on new members to educate their peers. For
members that apply mid-semester, this may require time to make-up missed
The real benefit to
you is the chance to learn about health topics and share your knowledge with
your peers – plus the opportunity to work with a wonderful group of fellow
HEREOS members. HEROES members will also receive a nationally recognized Peer
Educator Certification by the BACCHUS Network™.
GOOD LUCK on your
application. The efforts to educate students on health topics should come from
all peers, whether or not they are Peer Educators. So, we hope you will
continue your interest in health and wellness on campus regardless of the
outcome of your HEROES application.
2013-2014 HEROES President
