NIU Financial Cents in looking for peer educators for next semester. As a current peer educator, I recommend giving it consideration. It’s a great way to network, educate others, earn a scholarship, and a way to polish your resume. Being a peer educator allows you to educate others, while also learning in the process. It’s a great way to develop your communication, writing, and presentation skills. One of the best things about being a peer educator is how flexible the hours are. Only 50 hours a semester are required for a scholarship up to $500. Being a peer educator is also a great way to increase your chances of becoming a graduate assitance upon graduation.
