Through genuine peer education UNC Asheville's PEPAH seeks to empower, inspire, and support fellow students as they take charge of their mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, social, and sexual wellness. We are advocates for healthy lifestyle choices by providing resources to cultivate a diverse, all-inclusive and safe learning environment.

Who Are We? 


PEPAH Crew is made up of students from every major with a variety of interests. Students that join PEPAH Crew are looking to volunteer and earn service learning hours on campus. After 7 hours of working with the Health and Counseling Center, students in PEPAH Crew will receive a t-shirt and an invite to join us at the PEPAH intern meetings. The PEPAH Crew helps with all tabling, outreach events, and tasks within the Health & Counseling Center. If you are interested in considering a future in health or counseling services, this is an excellent place to start!

PEPAH Intern

PEPAH interns are UNC Asheville students who are interested in health and wellness topics and are committed to educating and empowering other students to make healthy life choices. Interns are chosen each spring by Health & Counseling Center staff after completing a formal application/interview process. They receive training that will lead to Bacchus certification as well as resume-building experiences in program development and outreach. The internship lasts the academic year and starts with a weekend of training prior to the start of the fall semester. Internship applications will be available on this site or from the Health & Counseling Center in early spring. Learn more about us and our journey.

PEPAH Intern Applications will be accepted on January 23 for the  2017-2018 school year.
