CANCELLATION OF FACE-TO-FACE OASIS EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
In line with Federal Government and Australia’s Chief Medical Officer’s advice in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic and gatherings, Flinders University has made the decision to cancel ALL face-to-face events, activities, meetings and gatherings at Oasis until further notice. Some of our programs (including the Wellbeing Ambassador Program) have moved online to FLO. Visit and join Oasis Online for more details.
The Wellbeing Ambassador Program has existed since 2018, with 25 students being trained and contributing to mental health initiatives and events at Flinders during this time. You may have seen some of them present at events like RUOK? Day – see the 2019 Ambassadors below!
HOW TO APPLY
Applications for the program open in January each year, requiring an application form to be completed and returned to me via email or at Oasis (my details at the end).
From these applications a select few are required to complete a group interview and then the final students chosen as Ambassadors for the year.
WHAT THE ROLE INVOLVES
Wellbeing Ambassadors are required to complete 2 compulsory wellbeing trainings, and have opportunity to complete other training such as Mental Health First Aid, Accidental Counsellor and SafeTalk. All have Horizon Points attached and free food. Delish!
In addition there will be monthly 1 hour meetings, as well as events to contribute to throughout the year. Many of these are shaped by your ideas, and others are simply you engaging with students and encouraging them to access support services.
If you have any more questions, please contact me on the details below.
There is so much potential for these roles, so if you have an interest in volunteering, developing new ideas and general care for student wellbeing, please apply!
