SHS provides several volunteer opportunities for students.
The Student Health Advocate (SHA) Program is a volunteer peer health education program at UC San Diego. The SHAs are an essential part of the Health Promotions Services and Student Health Services departments. SHAs are trained to educate other students about health issues and concerns through educational workshops, events, and campaigns. The SHA Program is also a registered student organization on campus and has been twice voted "Most Outstanding Student Organization".
- Well-being Cluster Student Advisory Board (WCSAB) provides guidance to the Executive Director of Student Health and Well-being, and the directors of the departments within the cluster which include: Student Health Services, Health Promotion Services, Counseling and Psychological Services and CARE@SARC. The WCSAB helps to ensure that the health and well-being needs of UC San Diego students are identified and met, and their interests are represented in the development of policies, programs and services that support their health and well-being. The board also helps to set future direction of health and well-being services including reviewing fees and providing input in the negotiations of the UC system-wide Student Health Insurance Plan (UCSHIP).
