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. Peer educators must also attend HAVEN and Safe Zone.
Peer Educators receive ongoing training during weekly meeting times and practice the curricula in its entirety on their own time. Any interested member of One Act may serve as a peer educator while also being on any committee or serving as a committee chair if his/her/hir schedule allows.
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.

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.
One Act became a student organization recognized by the University in January 2013 and is run by a Steering Committee.
