GA Awareness Campaigns
What we do?
- Golden ARCHES peer health educators are frequently asked to provide educational presentations for groups of students on campus or in housing. These include presentations and discussions about safe partying, and sexual health & responsibility.
- Golden ARCHES peers regularly do outreach and tabling events, where we promote healthy behaviors and choices, as well as promoting the other services and programs put on by The Well.
- We work collaboratively with other peer groups and departments to bring UCR students health-related campaigns, services, and events. Recent examples include planning the Sexual Health Fair, tabling at Stress Recess, creating campaigns to display around campus.
- Golden ARCHES peers also bring expert speakers to campus, in our main topic areas.
- Golden ARCHES hosts the annual UCR Sex Week. This is a nationally- recognize, award-winning program.
