H.Y.P.E. Internship Program

The HealthY Peer Empowerment (HYPE) Internship Program is a select group of student leaders who act as peer educators and promote the health of the DU campus community. HYPE is sponsored by Health and Counseling Center’s Health Promotion Office. HYPE Interns plan and implement education and outreach programs on a variety of pertinent health topics. These health issues include:

  • Sexual Health Education
  • Alcohol and Other Drugs
  • Mental Health and Mental Illness
  • Stress and Self-Care

HYPE takes the approach that students can help educate and empower other students. As college students, we often turn to our friends for advice about tough personal issues like alcohol use, stress, social and relationship problems, and sex health. Peer education serves as an outlet for students to get the info they need from a well trusted source - their peers.

HYPE will soon begin recruiting interns for the 2015-2016 school year! Do you have questions or want more information? Email or check out the website!
