SFU's Peer Education Program is a unique and collaborative opportunity for students to support students and build each other's individual and collective capacity, develop skills, make connections and build community.
As part of SFU Public Square’s Peer Education Program you can connect with fellow students who have similar passions, create space for peers to engage with each other on crucial issues, inspire action, and learn more about the student experience across all three campuses and online.
This opportunity is open to all SFU students of all identities and experiences. The Peer Education Program is intended to create space for student voices to be heard, amplified and empowered within the university. This includes those who have historically been left out of conversations and decision-making processes within the institution—for example, people with disabilities, Black, Indigenous and people of colour (BIPOC), and people who identify as 2SLGBTQIA+.
The role will require a time commitment of approximately 5-10 hours a week for two semesters. Each cohort will meet weekly, in-person at the SFU Public Square office at 312 Main, or online.
If you have any additional questions about the program, please contact Seth Erais, Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“SFU Public Square is essential to SFU’s goal of strengthening community engagement and bringing the community members together. I became a Peer Ambassador for SFU Public Square because I wanted to be a part of the organization that creates a safe place for dialogue between various community members, with a focus on the values of innovation, collaboration, inclusion and engagement.”

"I love the idea of creating a space where people can share information, meet new people and get involved. I am very passionate about creating change, whether it be through ideas of action, for the better or among others who share the same passion."
