A brief description of the program, including examples of peer-to-peer outreach activities (1st program):

BBGG club has programs where students educate the USD students through programs and events on campus and in the community. This advocacy group builds awareness and knowledge of sustainability issues and engages with other students to make a change. Outreach includes tabling in front of the University Center, holding free events and programs on campus, and creating and distributing educational materials to the Residence Halls and around campus.


A brief description of how the student educators are selected (1st program):

When we first established the BBGG club, student members were required to fill out a short application of their interest in the club. Currently, student members are selected on voluntary basis, however the Leadership Team within the club goes through an application and interview process. This process ensures that the students leading the other student members are capable of the responsibilities and duties necessary for compliance and inclusion on campus.


A brief description of the formal training that the student educators receive (1st program):

A yearly retreat is held during the school year based on team-building and knowledge around the various topics advocated for on campus. Weekly meetings are also held throughout the semester that educate the student members on the issues facing the campus and the students brainstorm on best practices to educate the student community.


A brief description of the staff and/or other financial support the institution provides to the program (1st program):

None. This is completely student run. However the student government, Associated Students, provides funding for lunch and some funding for marketing and educational materials for student participants.
