BroncoFit Peer Educators are valued members of the university community and provide essential outreach services for students, campus groups, classes, and organizations on a variety of health-related topics. They receive relevant training to develop and implement programs designed to improve campus well-being. Research has demonstrated the effectiveness of students working with students, and our BroncoFit Peer Educators have an immediate understanding of the social and academic pressures Boise State University students face.
Our students are Certified Peer Health Educators in accordance with standards set forth by the BACCHUS Network. The BACCHUS philosophy is that students can play a uniquely effective role – unmatched by professional educators – in encouraging their peers to consider, talk honestly about, and develop responsible habits and attitudes toward high-risk health and safety issues.
Currently, BroncoFit Peer Educators create programs around the following health topics:
- depression and anxiety
- other drugs
- sexual health
