Student Wellness & Health Promotion/Pow! Internship

Student Wellness & Health Promotion offers one (unpaid) internship experience in the Spring & one in the Fall semester to students with an interest in overall wellness, stress management, disordered eating, fitness, nutrition, sexuality, safer sex, STDs, and/or other related topics. This experience typically involves providing administrative support to the student peer education group Pow! Promoters of Wellness. Pow! is divided into two sub-groups, ABIDE (About Body Image & Disordered Eating) and SUGAR (Sexual Understanding, Growth And Responsibility). In the past, students with various majors in the College of Human Services, Education & Public Policy and students in the Women's Studies Department have been able to complete their internships for credit, in conjunction with a required class in their major. The Pow! Internship can be modified to meet the hours required by the course; past interns have completed 40 hours, 80 hours, or 600 hours.

The Pow! Internship offers a variety of experiences. The internship can be contoured, to some degree, to the student's interests. Responsibilities can include designing new educational programs for Pow!; researching current speakers, videos, books, and other educational tools; conducting on-campus surveys; or other projects of special interest to the intern. All interns are expected to assist with tasks such as: working at health fair tables and events to provide information about Pow!; coordinating Pow! program requests and corresponding with the requestors; attending Pow! meetings; emailing reminders and meeting minutes; designing & disseminating publicity for Pow! & Student Wellness & Health Promotion events; photocopying and assembling Pow! training binders (Spring); and completing other related tasks. The Student Wellness & Health Promotion/Pow! Intern is supervised by the Director, Nancy Chase.
