Peer Health Educator - Internship Program (Fall and Spring Semesters)

What is the Peer Health Education Program?

Peer Health Educators (PHE) are students who teach their peers about physical and mental health by conducting presentations, discussions, small group workshops, and outreach activities. Under the guidance of the Health Educator, the PHEs will undergo training so that they can provide preventative education for the CSUDH student body.

 Benefits of Becoming a PHE

  • Improved leadership and communication skills
  • Program planning and presentation skills
  • Increased knowledge about a wide range of health topics
  • An opportunity to make a difference in the health of CSUDH students
  • Recognition for volunteerism and service learning
  • Interaction and collaboration with various campus organizations
  • Resume enhancement
  • Improved self-awareness
  • Networking opportunities
  • Internship positions (for class credit or volunteer) available throughout the year

The Application Process:

Please submit the following items to the PHE advisor, JoAnn Aragon-Valdivia, at jaragon@csudh.edu or drop off them at the Student Health Center (across from Welch Hall).

1) Peer Health Educator Application [PDF]

2) Cover letter and current resume (detailing employment; if no employment, then school and volunteer experience).

3) A recent (written within 6 months) writing sample on any health or wellness-related topic, approximately one page+ in length.

The staff reviews all completed applications. Applicants that may be appropriate for the program will be invited to a brief interview (approximately 15 minutes). Students will be notified of the decision approximately one week after the interview.
