Peer Education

Peer Education is one of the best ways to get involved on campus. We offer presentations for your classroom, department, and organization. See which group (or groups) interests you!

Healthy Rebels

Healthy Rebels are peer educators who teach, advocate, and encourage healthier lifestyles. They complete a national certification program (Certified Peer Educator – CPE) and work with UNLV Student Wellness staff to conduct programs, presentations, and events on safer sex, alcohol, impaired driving, stress, relationships, cancer prevention, and much more. They are members of the BACCHUS Peer Education Network™ and work with peer educators at other universities to develop health education campaigns.

H.Y.P.E.R.

We are a group of UNLV students who are in long-term recovery from addictive disorders, students who are clean and sober or students who have been impacted by addiction during their lifetime. Our members come from all different backgrounds, but we share the common goal of recovery, education, resiliency and service. Our activities include support groups (12-step meetings, recovery process groups), substance-free events and education on addiction recovery in college.
