Alcohol and Drug Peer Education Application

Students seeking experience in leadership, advocacy, education, public speaking and public health will find the Alcohol and Other Drug Peer Health Educator position appealing to them. AOD Peer Health Educators are a team of motivated, enthusiastic, critically thinking individuals devoted to providing fact-based information so Adelphi University students make informed, responsible decisions regarding alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.

AOD Peer Health Educators present interactive workshops to classes, residence halls, Greek life organizations and other campus groups. 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 position provides competitive compensation to any Adelphi University student, whether or not they receive work-study. AOD Peer Health Educator applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
