Husky PAWS (Peer Awareness with Students)

Husky PAWS (Peer Awareness with Students)


Husky PAWS, a division of the Drug, Alcohol, and Wellness Network, consists of student peer educators who are trained to provide programs that promote low risk and healthy alternate choices regarding the usage of alcohol and other drugs. Furthermore, PAWS seeks to promote the concept of holistic health and a lifestyle conducive to wellness using educational programs.

PAWS Objectives

Educational programs are aimed to develop well-adjusted, healthy human beings. These programs should strive to make an acceptable changes in the behaviors of individuals. This changes may occur in the models of knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values, or skills.

To accomplish this, PAWS educational programs must seek to do more than impart traditional and factual information using a routine manner of instruction.

Thus, these educational programs strive to have students actively participate in a process that involves thinking and reflecting rather than memorizing. With this innovative approach, change can be possible!
