Get Involved at UNH!

Want to do something positive in our community and build your post-college resume at the same time? Consider volunteering at SHARPP!

SHARPP needs both Peer Advocates and Community Educators to help us fulfill our mission of providing direct services to survivors and education and outreach to the UNH community. Both programs play an important role in addressing violence at UNH.

Peer Advocates

SHARPP Peer Advocates provide advocacy and crisis intervention for survivors of recent, past or attempted sexual assault, child sexual assault, incest, intimate partner violence, stalking, sexual harassment and their allies. Additionally, advocates will work to prevent and eliminate sexual/intimate partner violence in the UNH community by assisting with educational programming on the UNH Durham campus.

After completing an extensive training through a credited course offering, SHARPP Advocates assist with staffing the 24/7 Help Line and collaborate with the department to provide sexual/intimate partner prevention education to their peers.

Community Educators

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 rally and 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. (click here for more info)
