Title

Peer health educators' motives

Abstract

In this study, the motives that influence students to become peer educators are reported. Undergraduates from the University of Central Florida, University of South Florida, and University of Florida, who participate in a Peer Health Education program, were surveyed. Results show responses to personal experiences, personal expectations, self-efficacy, and altruistic and extrinsic motivations. According to the findings, there is a unique set of motivating factors common among the majority of college students who chose to become peer educators. This study supports findings on peer health educators' motives and extends research to cover program recruitment and training.
