We invite you to join us for the 2016 BACCHUS Initiatives of NASPA Region V & VI Spring Conference in the greater Los Angeles area at Cal Poly- Pomona in Pomona, California, April 8-10, 2016! During the conference you can take advantage of learning and networking opportunities, namely by attending a pilot for the NEW Certified Peer Educator (CPE) Program! 

Not sure what CPE is? The CPE Program, launched originally in 1994, exists to assist student peer educators in developing the skills necessary to be effective leaders on their campus. Since its launch, over 200,000 students have been certified. The CPE Course will allow students to:

  • Learn about the past and present of peer education
  • Discuss ways to create change personally and throughout the community
  • Enhance listening skills
  • Respond to crisis
  • Be an empowered bystander
  • Learn about identity and its impacts on society
  • Plan & execute successful programs and presentations
  • Develop group dynamics, including a mission, vision, and values
  • AND MORE! 

While this does not replace the forthcoming "Train the Trainer" course for future facilitators, there are a number of reasons for advisors to attend the training as well:

  • It allows you to see the new CPE Course prior to the official launch. 
  • Participate in a pilot and give feedback critical to enhancing this launch. 
  • Learn more about what the CPE process looks like. 
  • Determine if YOU would like to be a facilitator for CPE on your campus

There are opportunities for student and advisor networking throughout the CPE experience, both social and educational. In addition to the CPE Course, peer educators have the opportunity to connect with other peer educators in their own backyard, while advisors gain valuable time to discuss collaborative prospects for education and creating change across campuses in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Utah. Whether you are able to bring your entire peer education group or just yourself, this experience is an incredible and rewarding opportunity to build and support our collective efforts in prevention and education.
