Peer Led Programs

Interested in Scheduling a Peer Led Classroom Program?

Our peer education groups offer several wellness and health promotion based educational programs for classrooms, residence halls and other similar settings.

In general, these programs take 45-60 minutes and cannot be reduced into a 20-minute time frame. Most of these programs are ideal with 50 people or less. When filling out the program request form, please choose the “Request to Meet” option if you are not prepared to give us the full time or you expect a much larger audience.  Submit your program request at least two weeks in advance of your preferred presentation date.

NOTE: The deadline to submit program requests for a program which you wish to occur during Spring 2020 is Friday, May 1st. The last day to have a program in the Spring 2020 semester is Friday, May 15th.

Reminder: Professors MUST stay in the room during the presentation, thank-you.

Descriptions of Peer Led Programs:

Gender Based Violence Programs

Presented by our S.O.S. peer advocates.

Get Up! Stand Up!

Are you a Courageous Bystander? Have you ever heard a sexist or homophobic joke and wished you had confronted it? Witnessed someone name-calling or hitting another person? Seen a woman passed out drunk in a room at a house party, then a man goes in and closes the door? Were you left with the nagging feeling that someone should have intervened…yet getting involved felt too risky? A “Courageous Bystander” is someone who takes an active role in promoting a respectful environment, or who takes action to safely and responsibly interfere with abusive behaviors, statements, or attitudes. This interactive program helps participants learn ways to be a courageous bystander and possibly save someone from victimization and trauma.

Netflix and Chill?

How do you ask for consent? Talking about sex can be scary, but it’s essential to be sure that your behavior is safe & legal. Find out how your peers ask for sex in this fun and interactive exercise. Learn about verbal & nonverbal red flags, and learn pathways to mutually respectful sexual encounters.

Where Do You Stand?

This human continuum exercise will help participants identify or clarify their own beliefs and values related to sexual assault, sexual harassment & sexual abuse as they consider and discuss a variety of both provocative and common college sexual scenarios. Students will learn what their peers think about when behavior crosses a line. Traditional myths about sexual assault will be de-bunked.

Why Doesn't She Just Leave?

Learn more about Intimate Partner Violence in this interactive simulation, where participants will be placed in a dating situation and asked to make some crucial decisions. Will you stay? Will you go? To whom can you turn? Participants will explore what makes a relationship healthy, unhealthy, or abusive; learn how to help a victim; and become familiar with resources available to students regarding relationships.

Recovery in College

Students from the Collegiate Recovery Community here at UD will come and talk about their own personal experiences with addiction and recovery as students. They will also talk informatively about addiction and recovery from a medical and sociological perspective, dispelling common misconceptions about substance use disorders in the general population and among college students. This program concludes with a presentation of the services offered by the Collegiate Recovery Program at UD and ways that interested students can get involved supporting sober students on campus. (Limited Availability)

Other Services You Can Request

Provided by our S.O.S. Peer Advocates.

Audience Support

S.O.S. provides audience support at campus events which discuss sexual misconduct, sexual assault, relationship violence, etc. Some attendees may have a strong emotional reaction to the content and wish to speak with an advocate. If you are planning an event that will focus on these topics, you can request that S.O.S. provide advocates to be present during the event in case audience members would like support. It is encouraged that you include this information in any introductions or announcements made at the beginning of the event to make your audience aware.

S.O.S. Table

S.O.S. can have a table with our resources and information at your campus event if it is relevant to the topics that we address.  If you are planning a resource fair or event that will focus on these topics, you can request that S.O.S. have a table at the event.
