Our facilitators get hands-on experience with health promotion – a must for students seeking careers in health, counseling or education. We provide facilitators with extensive training, including CPR certification, health screening practice and presentation skills. In the second semester of volunteering, we also offer facilitators the opportunity to shadow our healthcare providers and gain clinical experience.

When thinking about violence happening in the world, or in your own community, have you ever thought, “I’m just one person. What can I possibly do?” At the Violence Prevention Programs office at Health & Wellness Services, we have a simple answer to that question – just do something!
Our team believes students are the key to preventing violence on campus. We work with exceptional student leaders who have a passion for making our campus safer. Our graduate assistant Amber Morczek and student employee Janille Lowe recently won Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Distinguished Service Awards for their community service efforts around campus. Amber, a graduate student in Criminal Justice and Criminology, was recognized for her teaching, research, student activism, and volunteer work.
Janille, an undergraduate student double-majoring in Criminal Justice and Criminology and Psychology, was recognized as a member of WSU’s Queer People of Color and Allies, an organization working to create communities of support for queer people of color at our university. In addition to the wonderful work they’re doing around campus, Janille and Amber spend time in our office answering phones, greeting visitors, serving as representatives on university committees and giving presentations in classrooms and to student groups.
We’re always looking for more exceptional students to join our team! Volunteers help staff our office, set up for presentations and events, serve on student committees and engage in thoughtful conversations about keeping our campus safe. No experience is necessary to volunteer with our program. We are looking for students who are willing to participate in honest and open conversations about supporting victims and preventing violence. Our volunteers gain leadership and communication skills and make connections with others who share their interests.
