SPARKS Peer Education

Mission Statement:

The purpose of SPARKS (Students Promoting Awareness, Responsibility, Knowledge, and Success) is to advocate and facilitate healthy lifestyle choices, personal safety, and personal well being. Through education and awareness we hope to connect students to campus and community resources, enabling academic and social success.


SPARKS Peer Educators are a team of responsible student leaders who provide health-related programming and serve the Elon University community as health resources, in order to enhance the well being of their peers. Topics addressed by SPARKS include, but are not limited to: self-esteem/body image, alcohol education, sexual assault, sexual health, prescription drugs, and stress management.  SPARKS Peer Educators invite students to think critically about these and other health issues by raising questions, facilitating discussion, and disseminating health information.  SPARKS Peer Educators develop a multitude of skills, such as: leadership, public speaking, goal setting, time management, team work, program planning and evaluation.  All of these skills prove useful in life and future careers.
