Volunteering with Student Wellness & Health Promotion
Student Wellness & Health Promotion offers volunteer opportunities for students to be active in health promotion both on and off campus. The two main volunteer programs that we coordinate are:
1.) Pow!–The Promoters of Wellness, a service of Student Wellness & Health Promotion in which students are trained to provide educational programs and activities for their peers on a variety of wellness topics including fitness & nutrition, body image and disordered eating, sexuality, safer sex, risky sexual behaviors, general wellness, stress management, and massage. Explore the Pow website linked above if you would like to become a peer educator yourself!
2.) S. O. S.–Sexual Offense Support Services, provides the University of Delaware campus with 24 hours/day crisis service & victim advocacy for victims of sexual assault, intimate partner violence & stalking, as well as educational programs in classrooms, residence halls, student organizations, or for any other groups. Explore the SOS website to learn more about how to become an SOS volunteer.
Other volunteer opportunities offered by our office are:
3.) Membership in the Student Organization "V8 presents Opt 4" which plans alternative fun activities for students that don't involve alcohol. Check out V8 on Facebook to get involved!
4.) Student Wellness & Health Promotion offers two types of Internships. See our Internships page for information about each Internship, as well as how to apply.
5.) We also occasionally have special projects in our office and/or projects designed by you for our office, for UD students, or for area high schools. If you have an idea for a special project or would like more information, send an e-mail to email@example.com.
