Summer is almost over, and the Planned Parenthood Los Angeles Peer Advocates are heading back to school-- all 39 of them!  This is the most participants our teen advocacy program has ever had, and it promises to be an amazing year.  After completing a comprehensive training this month, the teens are equipped to debunk myths about sexual health and serve as valuable resources for their high school peers.  They're even incorporating theater as a teaching method this year!


Last week, Peer Advocate Jennesy participated in the Health Policy Outreach Center forum-- and was the only teen on the panel!  One way that Jennesy spreads the word about the importance of safer sex is through her Facebook page.  What do you wish you had learned about sexual health in high school?


Share your thoughts about sex education-- and your best wishes for this year's crop of Peer Advocates-- on PPLA's Facebook page!
