Apply to the Peer Advocate Program

We are officially opening up the application process for the second year of the Peer Advocate Program. After reviewing feedback from the current PAs and the houses, we are making some changes to the program and class. The application will be open to current frosh, sophomores, and juniors. You are able to serve in the official role for 1 year after which time you can remain available to your peers for support. Each year a new set of individuals will be selected to officially function in the Peer Advocate role.

PA Selection

The application is now online and is due Tuesday January 22, 2019 at noon, after which the selection process will begin. Once applications have been received, the search committee will then review the applications and obtain feedback from the house and references. Interviews will occur during the last week of January 2019 and the first two weeks of February 2019. After interviews, the interview panel, specific to each community, will decide on those chosen to serve as a Peer Advocate for their respective buildings and offers will be made by Spring term registration so that those selected can register for the Spring 2019 Peer Advocate Course.

Please review the Job Description, Course Description, and FAQ documents on the Peer Advocate website (www.peeradvocate.caltech.edu) to answer any questions you may have prior to and during the application process.
