The Longhorn SHARE Project recruits a new group of students to become SHARE Support Specialists each Fall. Those selected must be able to participate for three consecutive semesters, beginning with the 3-credit course HED 370K: Foundations of Peer Support and Social Wellness in their first semester prior to facilitating peer support activities the following Fall and Spring. The program also hires a Graduate Assistant/Intern annually to assist with administrative activities, communication and outreach, and support initiatives targeted toward graduate students.
Active SHARE Support Specialists are encouraged to share ideas and feedback to help shape the program, and ten peers each year are awarded small stipends for their contributions in the SHARE Student Advisory Group. Trained peers also have the option to participate in group interviews for the new SHARE cohort, help build community and lead skill-building activities for new trainees, or assist Longhorn Wellness Center staff with various wellness programs or tabling events.
