Become a Health Ed. Wellness Service Volunteer


Thanks for your interest in the Mississippi State University Longest Student Health Center's service volunteer program. Health Ed. & Wellness service volunteer educators are a selected group of students who provide health education programs on a variety of relevant health topics for MSU students. Program methods include presentations, group discussions, informational displays, and awareness campaigns. Topics include, but are not limited to, nutrition, stress management, sexuality, drug and alcohol education, and general wellness.

Responsibilities of a peer educator include:
• Attending weekly meetings/trainings
• Designing, organizing, and participating in awareness activities
• Designing and presenting health programs for residence halls
• Staffing information tables and displays
• Designing and/or distributing flyers, brochures, and posters
• Participating in campus-wide wellness projects

As you decide whether you would like to become a member of the service volunteer group for the Health Education and Wellness Department, please thoughtfully consider the expectations and level of commitment required. Being a service volunteer requires participation in training sessions and a time commitment of 20 hours per semester. Potential applicants should consider their academic load and other extra-curricular commitments before applying.

Please complete an application. After an interview with the service volunteer coordinator and graduate students, the service volunteers will be selected. Requirements for applying are that you must be a full-time undergraduate MSU student with a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.5 or higher. Students who can devote an entire year to the peer education program are preferred.

If you are interested in learning more about specific health issues, would like to raise the awareness of students on campus, and have the time and commitment to become a member of Health Ed. & Wellness volunteer group, you are encouraged to apply. If you have any questions, please contact JuLeigh Baker at 325-2141 or stop by the Health Education office (3rd floor) in the Longest Student Health Center.
