The Women's Center's Leadership & Engagement Program is designed to get students engaged and impart leadership skills, career skills, and professional development. The Leadership & Engagement Program includes the Women's Center Student Assistants and Safe@Weber Peer Educators.
Women's Center Student Assistants
Student Assistants focus on programming, office operations, & outreach. They work on major projects, learn professional skills, and have the opportunity to create programs and campaigns. Over the course of the year, learn from a social justice/feminist leadership education curriculum. By the end of their time with us, the goal is fto have acquired a solid base knowledge of various social justice topics and feminist leadership skills, as well as to have help prepare them not only for success at Weber but for the professional world.
Safe@Weber Peer Educators
Safe@Weber Peer Educators assist the Violence Prevention Coordinator in the development and facilitation of Safe@Weber workshops on topics of consent, healthy relationships, bystander intervention, gender socialization, risk reduction, survivor support, and dynamics of sexual/physical/emotional abuse. All of our Safe@Weber Peer Educators receive training in public speaking, workshop facilitation, violence prevention and advocacy, and a wide variety of professional skills.
