We Coach, Advocate, Refer and Educate (WE CARE) is a peer education group dedicated to the health and well-being of students at Appalachian State University. Sponsored by Wellness and Prevention Services, this student organization provides a wide variety of public health strategies both on campus and in the community. In March 2022, students in WECAN, the Red Flag Campaign, and WECOACH combined to form WeCare. All of their presentation requests can now be found on the Wellness and Prevention Engage page. The request form includes descriptions.

Applications and interviews are schdeuled on a rolling basis!
WE CARE works to positively impact student wellness at Appalachian State University by empowering peers to change health behaviors, working as an advocacy group for student well-being, and addressing student needs to promote and protect healthy lifestyles. Presentation topics include body image, mental health, nutrition, interpersonal violence and sexual health.
Active Bystander Training
WE CARE trains the Appalachian community to become Active Bystanders (opens in a new tab) and on how to step up and speak out when encountering potentially dangerous situations. Learn about the “red flags” of sexual, interpersonal, and dating violence. Presentations can be conducted to peer groups, student organizations, academic classes, and more. Topics include preventing interpersonal violence, active bystander intervention, and rape culture. This presentation was formally under the Red Flag Campaign.
