Peer Support 

Each chapter has access to a dedicated Certified Peer Support Specialist.

New Member Programming

Our team implements new member programming that is focused on assisting new members with their transition to college. New members participate in workshops focused on topics like Drug & Alcohol abuse, Time Management, Identifying University Resources and Social vs. Academic balance.  They meet with their dedicated Peer Support Specialist to build the foundation for a successful collegiate experience. 

Academic Success

Our team works alongside leadership to establish academic standards for each chapter increasing focus and energy on accelerating academic success.  We provide support to members not meeting those standards by creating corrective action plans and overseeing the execution of the plan.  We want to ensure members are utilizing available resources both within the fraternity and the university to optimize their potential. 

Customized Onsite Programming 

We recognize that each chapter has varying priorities and needs.  We partner with the alumni and active leadership teams to determine the right onsite programming focus.  Topics can include: drugs & alcohol, mental health education/support, sexual assault, life skills development, academic support etc... 

Crisis Response

Each chapter has access to professionals in order to assist in any matter that may have a negative impact on them personally or on the organization as a whole.  Led by Ph.D Mental Health Professional, master level social workers, and a team of certified Peer Support Specialists.

Peer-Based Support Roles and Function

Support services, as the term is used here, refers to non-clinical services that are designed to help initiate and sustain individual and team success and character development. All products and services delivered within this program are grounded in the peer-based modality of supportive services.

Peer-Based support services will be provided by an individual, or team of individuals, meeting with the athletes on a weekly basis to provide:

  • Emotional support—demonstrations of empathy, caring, and concern in such activities as peer mentoring and life coaching.

  • Informational support—provision of health and wellness information; educational assistance; and help in acquiring new skills, ranging from life skills to skills in college readiness.

  • Instrumental support—concrete assistance in task accomplishment, especially with stressful or unpleasant tasks such as academic pressures, social pressures, organizational obligations, and parental expectations.

  • Leadership —helping students within the team to feel connected, identify and achieve goals both socially, behaviorally and academically and develop necessary life skills to achieve identified success both in college and in the future.

 

The peer-based support service providers deliver weekly services in an informal manner. This 

creates an open atmosphere of engagement and student participation.

 
 

Speaking Engagements and Workshops

Dr. Downs takes an approach that empowers young men and women to take the information given and apply critical thinking skills by relating to the subject mater and creating a space that is completely judgement free

 

Young adults do not respond to information or behavioral suggestions that are spoken at them versus spoken with them. In his workshops, Dr. Downs engages the audience in a way that will create space for their thoughts to be respected and a collaboration is formed to order to better pass along the information that is needed. 

 

Young adults (age range of 18-28) are experiencing the stage of lifespan development that is arguably the most stressful, chaotic, and uncertain of their lives. However, this is where they have the opportunity to develop their identity and life skills that will propel them forward into a success future. Every workshop, program development, and talk that Dr. Downs does has this vitally important information as a core principle.

 

Topics of workshop include but not limited to:

 

  • Alcohol and other drugs: The relationship and role of substance abuse and misuse among the young adult population

  • Legacy: The value of building a foundation of greatness 

  • Sexual Assault

  • Social Media: benefits and dangers and why its so powerful

  • Recovery Solutions – how to maximize your recovery potential using a multitude of reasons

  • Resiliency: Taking the opportunity to find success no matter what

  • Leadership: Leaders create leaders
