The LiveWell Office offers opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students to participate in service learning through volunteerism with our three programs: SHORE Peer Educators, Wally’s Shell Squad and the LiveWell Peer Educators. Sometimes, service learning or volunteerism is a requirement for academic classes. In these circumstances, a student can schedule an appointment to meet with one of the advisors of the peer educator groups to review the options for involvement. However, students may opt to volunteer without receiving academic credit. Service learning and volunteer opportunities may look very different for each student who chooses to work with the LiveWell Office. Some students may choose to volunteer to help with setting up or running outreach events, while others may provide assistance with a variety of initiatives, data collection, clerical tasks and many other tasks relating to wellness.
Students can complete internships in the LiveWell Office through a variety of colleges and departments. Some of the most common majors that complete internships with the office are public health, communication, psychology and sociology. Students in other majors have completed internships in the LiveWell Office as well. Internship activities can include, but are not limited to: research, marketing, event coordination, leadership with peer educator groups, website management and more. Please contact the LiveWell office at 843-349-4031 if you are interested in obtaining course credit for helping your fellow students through an internship.
