Definition of a student supporter

A student supporter is a volunteer student who has gone through the training necessary to give clear, empathetic, and empowering support. They confidentially fill out a past struggles inventory that allows us to send them spills based on their prior experience and comfort with particular topics. These are fellow peers on campus who have decided that they want to help other students who are struggling by responding to several emails each semester.

What the commitment would entail

Seeing as Spill doesn’t have any meetings, being a student supporter is a relatively painless community service opportunity. Student supporters typically receive approximately 5-10 emails each semester, and commit to responding to each within 24 hours. It’s a great way to directly benefit other people on campus who are struggling!
