Campus Advocates Respond and Educate to Stop Violence (CARE) is now accepting applications from undergraduate students interested in addressing power-based violence—such as sexual assault, relationship violence, sexual harassment and stalking—through its Peer Educators and Outreach Peers programs.
Peer educators help teach the campus community about power-based violence through interactive workshops covering bystander intervention, healthy relationships and consent. Outreach peers serve as the voice of CARE and are responsible for making Terps aware of its services and resources.
Interested students can fill out an application at go.umd.edu/carepeerprogram. For questions about the Outreach Peers program or the Peer Education program, email Coordinator for Outreach and Assessment Grace Fansler Boudreau or Assistant Coordinator for Prevention Education Laura Widener, respectively.
Applications for CARE’s third peer program, Peer Advocates, will be available in February.
CARE is also offering three information sessions for students interested in learning more about its peer programs. To see dates and times for those sessions and RSVP, visit go.umd.edu/carechat.
