CARE Peer Educators

The CARE peer educators is a group of UNCW students whose goal is to reduce the risk of sexual assault and sexual harassment in the hopes of elimination. This goal is realized through interactive presentations, awareness campaigns and programs that reach out to University students, high school students and the Wilmington community. This group started as UNCW’s student-led Reach Out! program in 1999. Since then, it has continued to bring female and male students together who are dedicated to taking an active approach to ending violence against women and men.

WHY: I'm a CARE peer because I believe if I can reach out and impact even just one person's life, through education, guidance or support, everything will be worth while. Every person deserves a chance to be heard, no matter what situations they have been through.

Quote: “If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” – Maya Angelou

 

I am a CARE Peer Educator because if I can inform my peers about what makes a sexual assault or unhealthy relationship and be someone’s voice when they feel like they don’t have anyone on their side, then it will make everything worth it at the end of the day. I want to spread love and compassion to my college campus about the issues CARE deals with and make it known that everyone deserves a healthy relationship.

I'm a CARE Peer Educator because when I was dealing with a bad relationship, it helped to have someone there, and if I can be that someone for another person it would make everything worth it.
