UW LiveWell seeks Peer Health Educators and Graphic Designer

We were looking to see if you all could post this job opening, specifically for the PHE Design Coordinator Position, on your “Jobs & Opportunities” webpage, and to also spread the word to interested design (and related majors) students. It would only need to be on there for about a week, since attendance at one of our info sessions next week is mandatory to receive an application.

All the information and applications can be found here on our website: https://livewell.uw.edu/phejobs/

Interested students must register and attend one of our Information Sessions next week (Tuesday, 2/1 at 6:30pm, Wednesday 2/2 at 10:00am, and Thursday 2/3 at 3:30pm) in order to receive an application. Registration link for info sessions is here: https://forms.gle/u5tuanPujsDbnrkv5 . Applications will be accepted until Tuesday, February 15th at 11:59 PST. We will be notifying candidates if they are selected for an interview via email.

Our Peer Health Education Program uses educational workshops, 1-1 peer wellness coaching, outreach, awareness campaigns, and event programming to promote individual and community health and well-being. Peer Health Educators (PHEs) engage in health promotion, prevention, and harm reduction work within the following areas: stress management, sleep, relationships and intimacy wellness, self-awareness and self-image, alcohol and substance use, anxiety and fear, supporting peers, interpersonal violence, and helping skills/bystander intervention. Peer Health Educators share responsibility for nurturing respectful team dynamics, giving growth-oriented feedback, and modeling ethical leadership as student leaders at the University of Washington.

Our Design Coordinator Position is focused more on design and marketing work, but does include some public speaking and presenting like the rest of the PHEs. This is a great opportunity for HCDE, Design, Art, and other related major students. This position is one that works with the PHE Supervisor (Assistant Director of LiveWell) and the PHE Coordinators (leadership team) closely. This position will be responsible for helping create health and wellness related awareness campaigns, as well as create and market ongoing PHE workshops, programs, and events. This position will also be responsible for creating content for the LiveWell/PHE website, Instagram, and Facebook. 

Work-study eligible students are able and encouraged to apply for this student job.
