The Student Wellness program provides health education for JJC students. The mission is to provide students with wellness resources, to promote healthy lifestyles, reduce risky behaviors, and foster a safe educational environment.
List of Student Wellness Programs
Safe Zone Programs
The goal of our Safe Zone program is to make Joliet Junior College a safer environment for all members of the campus community – regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression – through training allies. An ally is someone who works to end oppression through support and advocacy. Since 2009, the Office of Student Activities has trained over 200 Safe Zone Allies. Students and staff can view more information and training dates through their MYJJC portal page.
Bystander Intervention Training
The goals of bystander intervention are to: raise awareness of helping behaviors, increase motivation to help, develop skills and confidence when responding to problems or concerns, and to ensure the safety and well-being of oneself and others. Students can visit the myJJC Bystander Intervention portal page to learn more about the bystander effect.
Alcohol & Drug Awareness Program
Student Wellness works on providing information about alcohol and drugs and the impact of them on students. Various events are held each year.
Students looking for community service opportunities can work with Student Wellness to learn of community organizations seeking volunteers. Many opportunities can be viewed through the MYJJC portal.
The Student Wellness portal page (My JJC) has resource pages available for students on many of the wellness related topics. Agency information, resources, and educational materials are available.
