Leadership Opportunities

Peer Education

Peer educators are UNC-CH students who would like to train other students in the four-hour One ACT curriculum or the three-hour One ACT for Greeks curriculum. Peer education is considered a High Impact Practice in Student Affairs.

All peer educators are required to attend sessions where they learn presentation skills, facilitation skills, and other knowledge needed to present One ACT.  At the end of One ACT peer education training, students are more knowledgeable about interpersonal violence and less likely to agree with rape myths. They are more confident in their skills to intervene and self-report an increase in their intervention as bystanders. Read a summary report about outcomes for peer educators in the Attachments.

In addition to facilitating One ACT trainings, peer educators are required to support the training programs in PODs. PODs are responsible for aspects of the program such as peer educator development, violence prevention events, and research and assessment. Each POD has a captain to facilitate the tasks of the POD. The programs are also supported by the steering committee, including training coordinators, membership coordinators, and more.

Social Media Interns

Social media interns are UNC-CH undergraduate students currently enrolled in WGST 340 Leadership in Violence Prevention. Over approximately 30 hours of APPLES service-learning, social media interns develop a plan for posting on One ACT's Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts in order to increase followers and share messages which support the One ACT mission.
