Volunteers Welcome

In the Health Education Department, there are opportunities to be a Peer Health Educator through our Healthy Cards program or to be a part of our volunteer program.

If you are interested in participating as a Peer Health Educator which is a paid position, please see the side tab that says “Healthy Cards” for more information. Applications open in Fall 2023.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please fill out the forms at the bottom of this page and email them to the Health Educator, Courtney Jackson at CJackson30@lamar.edu.

Service Hours: 

If you are interested in volunteering to earn service hours for your organization, club, or other extra-curricular, this needs to be discussed prior to the first scheduled event in which you will be volunteering. The Health Educator can sign off on hours that you commit to the Health Education Department.
