Community Educators

Help spread the word!CEs

SHARPP’s Community Educators help us spread the word about sexual assault prevention at UNH through a number of activities. Sometimes they literally “take it to the streets” by passing out lemonade or hot chocolate along with the message of consent or by helping with our annual walk to end violence on campus. Other times, they pass out information about our issues in the MUB or support our ongoing programming. In all cases, our Community Educators are a vital resource to help us spread the word about healthy relationships and sexual assault prevention at UNH.
