Fund Feature: Student Wellness Ambassador Program (SWAP)
Did you know that demand for counselling services has grown by 28% over the course of the pandemic? This is drastically up from the 8% annual rise seen in previous years. Across the board, students are feeling more isolated, stressed, lonely and disconnected than ever before.
To combat these effects, our Student Services department is launching the Student Wellness Ambassador Program (SWAP), which will give students access to peer-to-peer support on and off campus. This program will help our students overcome the stigma of mental illness, but first they need your help. Your gift, of any size, will help us build a sustainable program so we can better meet the growing demand for mental health support and break down barriers to access.
Thanks to the generous support of former Chancellor Janice Varzari (BN ‘90, MEd ‘02) and her husband Glenn Varzari, your gift can go twice as far. The Varzari’s will match all gifts up to $20,000, ensuring that the Student Wellness Ambassador Program can get started sooner and support our students for many years to come. Every dollar you contribute qualifies for the match.
