The New You is The New School’s Peer Health Advocacy program, advised by Wellness and Health Promotion staff. Volunteer student leaders with a passion for health develop programs and services for their fellow students. Working with one another and health educators, these peer health advocates (PHAs) receive training in health education, promotion, advocacy, and leadership skills. They may facilitate interactive health education programs in classes, residence halls, public spaces, and online, or develop promotional materials and Web-based applications related to health. Students have opportunities for training in health-related areas of particular interest.
In addition to offering volunteer and stipend options, The New You is a placement site for both Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts and the Schools of Public Engagement.
PHA training is offered once a year in the fall term. If you are interested in becoming a PHA during the spring semester, please contact us at
