The get SMART program is designed to educate high school students and train them to become teen peer educators that deliver community-based education about sexual health and responsibility to their network of friends. Trained peer educators will hold either small group or one-on-one education sessions with their peers to present the facts about sexual behaviors, contraception, pregnancy and sexual transmitted diseases and dispel the myths about these topics. Technology such as text messaging, e-mailing and social networking websites will be used in addition to word-of-mouth to assist in the learning process.
We're seeking Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors (as of Fall 2010) for get SMART. Selected students will participate in summer training seminars. Stipends (a form of payment) will also be available for some get SMART peer educators.
