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.

Finish this Sentence: I'm a CARE Peer Educator because…I believe in the healing power of love, and the importance of good relationships. I want to infuse my college campus with compassion, empathy, and respect. Although I know that it will take time to completely eradicate these issues, helping those who are hurting takes no time at all. I never want to see someone suffer alone, and that's why I do what I do

Favorite quote: "don't tell me the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon"

 

I'm a peer educator because: I feel that there are a lot of misconceptions about what constitutes sexual assault or what makes an unhealthy relationship. I want to help educate those around me about the truth, and to empower people with the knowledge of how to help a friend. Also, to be a friend myself, for anyone that needs someone to talk to.

I'm a CARE Peer Educator because I care about people and how they are treated.  I want to advocate and prevent the social problems of domestic violence, rape, and sexual assault.  Also, I want to hopefully be involved with domestic violence, rape, and sexual assault victims after college as a career.

Favorite Quote: “What convinces is conviction. Believe in the argument you're advancing. If you don't you're as good as dead. The other person will sense that something isn't there, and no chain of reasoning, no matter how logical or elegant or brilliant, will win your case for you.” -Lyndon B. Johnson

 

I’m a CARE Peer Educator because I feel that it is my duty to help those who feel that they do not have a voice.
