One DePaul student organization that is seeking to make a difference in the Chicago community is Peer Health Exchange. If you are interested in teaching health workshops to high school students who don’t have health classes included in their regular curriculum, then this is the organization for you. Peer Health Exchange is currently seeking new members who want to develop their teaching and leadership skills. This organization is the perfect way to supplement any observation hours you might be doing this quarter.
As a part of this organization, you’ll need to commit four to six hours a week for the 2012-2013 academic year to help teach workshops to high school students. This will give you practice being in front of the classroom, as you will be teaching lessons each week on health topics. No matter which subject level or grade level you plan on teaching, this organization will help you gain experience in the field. You’ll travel to different high schools in the community, make valuable connections, and learn a lot!
Peer Health Exchange is having information sessions on Tuesday, September 18th at 7pm and Thursday, September 20th at 6pm. The sessions will be held in the John T. Richardson Library in Room 400. They will have free food, as well as information on the application process. The applications are already online at www.peerhealthexchange.org/apply and there is a priority deadline of September 14th.
