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 the volunteer and stipend options, the Eugene Lang College Internship Program offers students interested in health and well-being the opportunity to participate in The New You. Participants will work with the Eugene Lang College Internship staff to determine credits to be earned.
PHA training is offered once a year in the fall term. Fall 2014 training dates will be September 26-28, 2014. To apply, submit the online application form. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
