What is H.O.P.E.?

HOPE stands for Helping Our Peers Excel and is a peer education program. HOPE is not considered a club – rather it is a student led component of our campus counseling center, which helps to reach students who may not be knowledgeable of or ready to seek support from our professional counselors on campus.

 

H.O.P.E Mission Statement

As H.O.P.E. Peer Educators, we are committed to “Helping Our Peers Excel” by offering education and support that promotes overall wellness, responsible decision making, academic success and advancing the common good for our campus community. Through creative peer-to-peer discussions and campus events, we strive to inspire others to discover “not only how to make a living, but how to live”.

 

H.O.P.E. Presentations

Peer educators receive training and are prepared to educate their peers through 30-40 minute presentations on the following topics:

·         Homesickness

·         Adjusting to college

·         Self-esteem/body image

·         Improving communication and interpersonal skills

·         Anxiety and stress management

·         Depression and coping skills

·         Healthy relationships

·         Grief and loss

If you are interested in having a H.O.P.E. presentation in your class or for your group, please contact us at hopepeereducators@kings.edu.  We appreciate 2 weeks notice.  Please understand we may have limitations on availability based on our own peer educators’ class schedules.
