ALTOONA, Pa. — Penn State Altoona's peer advocacy program has added additional virtual drop-in hours for the spring 2021 semester beginning March 22.

Penn State Altoona's Health and Wellness Center is partnering with the human development and family studies degree program to offer a remote peer advocate program during the spring 2021 semester. Trained students will serve as peer advocates to offer a supportive listening environment with drop-in hours.

Students can Zoom in to discuss concerns about stress, relationships, the future, courses, feelings of being overwhelmed, or just to talk.

The peer advocacy schedule is available on the Health and Wellness Center website.
