S.A.F.E stands for Substance Awareness through Functional Education. S.A.F.E is a group on campus that was created to help students understand different issues about alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. The programs put on by this club are meant to contain factual information to help students choose healthy lifestyles. Peer educators in this group learn how different factors like society, attitudes and values affect student’s decisions about drugs and alcohol.

S.A.F.E program’s belief is that students learn best from each other. Rather than reaching out for help from faculty, it is sometimes more comfortable for students to talk to each other about topics that they can relate with each other about. To become a S.A.F.E peer educator, you are required to take part in a Certified Peer Leadership training program. This program is through UNH and will provide you with the skills to help educate peers, listen to peers, help create healthy lifestyles and intervene with unhealthy behaviors. S.A.F.E reaches out to students in residence halls, Greek life, and in classes. Recruitment to become a S.A.F.E peer educator will begin again starting next semester. For more information on how to get involved with this group, visit S.A.F.E’s program page on health service’s website.
