Health Promotion interns are an essential part and work in the Harbor Center  at Purchase. Interns receive training through the weekly class, teach, mentor and assist peers in enhancing their wellness lifestyles.

Health Promotion Interns are ambassadors for the Harbor Center creating and staffing prevention and wellness events and activities. Health Promotion Interns will gain an awareness of the eight areas of Wellness: Environmental, Emotional, Social, Occupational, Intellectual, Physical, Financial and Spiritual. Health Promotion Interns will also be introduced to the concepts and practice of mindfulness. Interns support Harbor Center programming throughout the semester and support other interns in their own programming, tabling, and final projects.

Interns will earn up to 4 credits for this on-campus Internship in which they will assist with ongoing programming and design and implement their own campus programs with support from the Wellness Center staff.  If you are interested in the Health Promotion internship, please email akeera.peterkin@purchase.edu.
