Wellness Leaders Programme

The Wellness Leader program is a student driven program that serves to promote holistic wellness throughout the student community for all students.  It is a program “for students, by students”. The wellness leader program is based on the wellness model; which provides a conceptual framework for operationalising student development needs in a holistic way by focusing on the physical, academic, social, emotional and spiritual needs of students and thereby promoting overall wellness. 

These students are going to be trained throughout the year on different topics related to all the 5 wellness domains (physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual wellness). These students also act as a liaison between the student body and the four divisions of Wellness at Rhodes University which are: Counselling Centre, Health Care Centre, Career Centre and HIV office.  The Wellness leaders will be involved in many campaigns throughout the year, campaigns linked to the four divisions, as well as campaigns that they themselves run.  These students play a pivotal role within the residence system, as they are the students that advertise these various campaigns and promote wellness on an individual level. They provide support to all students with different problems and link these students to appropriate referral sources available on campus
