Counseling at the SHPRC is a fun and meaningful way to give back to the Stanford community! Working as a peer counselor at our center, you’ll have many opportunities for leadership and personal development.
- All counselors must take the Stanford course EDUC 193S: Peer Counseling on Comprehensive Sexual Health prior to their first quarter of counseling. This interesting and informative one unit course is offered all three quarters from 7-9 on Tuesdays.
- Prior to or during their first quarter of counseling, each counselor must take EDUC 193A: Listen Up! Core Peer Counseling Skills, a two unit course offered three times a year.
- All active counselors have at least one hour long shift each week.
- Each counselor is also responsible for completing one outreach during the quarter. This can range from planning a talk for a dorm or student group, to tabling in White Plaza or at Exotic Erotic. Check out our Outreach page for more info!
- In addition to counseling, especially dedicated students have the opportunity to join our Core Staff. We have a variety of positions available including Co-Director, Financial Officer, Outreach Coordinator, Teaching Assistant for EDUC 193S, Frosh Intern, and more.
- Applications for these positions are distributed to all students eligible to counsel at the beginning of Spring quarter. For more information, please contact Laura (lbomes[at]stanford[dot]edu)
