Planned Parenthood's Peer Advocates are high school students who undergo a sequenced training program to talk to their peers about prevention of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. Planned Parenthood partners with local schools in South Los Angeles and Boyle Height to engage and train students to become peer advocates.
Peer Advocates make a year-long commitment to promote risk prevention among their peers. This “youth-to-youth” strategy debunks common myths surrounding sex and pregnancy at their source, opens the lines of communication among students, and improves access to high-quality health services and community resources.
