UW Peer Health Educators volunteer application

Hi there!  My name is Maya, and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for the Peer Health Educators, a student organization that exists under the official University of Washington Health & Wellness office. Briefly, Peer Health Educators are student volunteers who facilitate workshops, organize events, run health campaigns, and inspire passion for student health issues in groups all over campus.

I am reaching out to you because we are currently in the process of recruiting students to join our 2019 volunteer cohort. We’ve just released our application (which is due February 15th) and are hoping that you could pass on this announcement to your department.

We’d really appreciate it if you could help our efforts to reach the most amount of people we can by informing your students of this opportunity.
