“This internship was incredibly helpful in developing my sense of community. Although us interns paired off into groups to tackle different initiatives, I was glad to see how closely related such initiatives were to each other. Together, we worked on developing a sense of community on campus while focusing on the mental and physical wellbeing of all bulldogs.” Nicholas Poveda ’22, Fall 2021 Intern

“This internship allowed me to develop new skills as well as apply skills I have learned throughout my education at the UoR.  I was able to apply psychological concepts, my research skills, all while being able to put my own creative twist in the wellness campaign I developed with the team.” Angela Stendahl ’22, Spring 2022 Intern

“As a psychology major, many of the ideas that were brought to the table across all of our individual events really opened my eyes to the endless possibilities in the arena of health and wellness. As well as how these endless possibilities really shape our health and help us grow as students at the U of R." Thomas Jansen ’22, Fall 2021 Intern

"This internship has helped me grow a lot throughout the semester! I felt that I learned more about myself, improved my communication skills, and I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve the Redlands student community. I feel that I will take the tools, strategies, and resources I have learned here at LiveWell and will apply them to future work, relationships, and my own personal growth." Maddie Luscher ’23, Spring 2022 Intern

“I have always had a passion for spreading awareness on mental, social, and physical wellbeing. LiveWell gave me the opportunity to not only do this, but also to meet and work with peers who had similar passions. LiveWell helped me grow my skills by giving me a platform to plan social media posts and campus events. I am grateful for everything I've learned and am excited to apply this knowledge to my future career." Emily Meyer ’22, Fall 2021 Intern

Here is what you can expect as a student intern:

  • We offer Certified Peer Educator Training, a nationally recognized health education training, to students who work with our office. In addition, regular meetings with interns include ongoing professional development via research on specific health topics, and other competencies, like coaching/motivational interviewing skills, program design and marketing, etc. 
  • We seek to find a fit between the specific interest of student interns, and the priorities of our office. Interns are typically tasked with leading one or two specific projects/initiatives, with oversight from a professional staff member. This allows interns to have some voice/options in what projects they oversee.
  • The commitment we ask of students is a minimum of 6hours a week for 13 weeks in the semester, with some additional training time at the start of or prior to the semester, for a total of around 75 hours. You can expect 1-2 hours of meeting time with per week that will occur during the hours of 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday. The remainder of your hours can be flexible around your classes and other commitments, though once established we expect interns to keep a fairly regular, consistent schedule. Additionally, you can expect to allocate approximately 8 hours to independently complete the Certified Peer Educator training before the start of the internship, as well as attend training sessions on May 18th, 2022, and May 19th, 2022 from 1pm-3pm each day. You can expect to also have at least one additional training session during the week of May 23rd, 2022-  this session will be more individualized, so we can work around your schedule to determine the date and time.
    • We have an option to work with you to create a 4-credit independent study class. This would require more hours per week but offers more depth and experience.
    • Paid positions may be available for qualified candidates. Priority for paid positions will be given to those who have previously completed an internship with LiveWell Bulldogs, and/or those who have taken HMS-240, Health Promotion and Health Education.

If you are interested, you can learn more about our office by examining our LiveWell Bulldogs webpages and Instagram account.
