Want to be an Alcohol and Other Drugs Peer Educator?

If you want experience in leadership, advocacy, education, public speaking and public health, this is the position for you. Apply to be an Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Peer Educator and join a team of motivated, enthusiastic, critically thinking individuals who are devoted to providing fact-based information so Adelphi University students make informed, responsible decisions regarding alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.

Topics covered include the effects of alcohol and other drugs (specifically marijuana and prescription drug use), warning signs of problematic drinking, guidelines for responsible drinking, and most importantly, alcohol poisoning identification and response, among others.

This is a paid position for any student, undergraduate or graduate, work-study or non-work study. However, note that you must be available to work select Thursday nights 9:00 p.m.–1:00 a.m. and certain weekends as well. All Adelphi University students are welcome to apply.

Presentation topics may include:

Presentations are tailored to the needs of both of those who requests the program and the target audience.
