Why serve as a CES peer leader?
I think that community is the most important part of one's experience at a school. I want to be a part of shaping one's experience here in the Baylor community. I want to help and transform the students' lives in some sort of way. Whether that may be being a peer leader that a student can come to with questions or even encouraging students to step out in the community of Waco, I want to make a difference.
- Kendall Downey
I want to figure out the disconnect some students may face when physically participating in service without actively being engaged in it. Moreover, I want to convey the message that when we choose to serve others or a community, we are also being served in an even greater capacity.
- Victoria Ette
I became a Peer Leader so that I could learn how to serve Baylor better and be equipped with the tools I need to make an impact in the right way.
- Austin Dobbs
the CES peer leader program is one of several Academy peer leader iterations. It provides advanced leadership opportunities & training for talented students looking to make a difference on campus and in the community. CES Peer Leaders serve as campus ambassadors for CES and work to promote a culture of informed engagement for their peers through service, education, and advocacy.
"By participating in the CES Peer Leader program...I was encouraged to continue to pursue a life directed towards change and expanded my understanding of development work." -Zach Gee
