CAPS Ambassadors program

CAPS Ambassadors is a volunteer peer to peer outreach program for all enrolled students. CAPS Ambassadors will represent CAPS at various outreach events across campus, including Residential Hall Programming, Student Group Events, and informational tabling during the academic year. There are only a limited number of spaces so please be as thorough as possible on your application.

Purpose: CAPS Ambassadors will provide outreach on behalf of the CAPS Office. Ambassadors will speak with individual students and groups of students about the services offered at CAPS, including workshops, groups, self-help resources, and accessing care. Ambassadors will be approachable and positive in regards to the mental health services offered on campus. This peer to peer outreach will help reach more students and aide in breaking the stigma surrounding accessing mental health services.

Commitment: All Ambassadors can expect to participate in 2 - 5 outreach activities per semester. Outreach activities include already established activities by CAPS staff, as well as proposed programs/initiatives by CAPS Ambassadors. All outreach activities must be approved by the CAPS Ambassador Supervisor. There will be a brief training for all CAPS Ambassadors.
