teenREACH is a sexual health peer education program for high school students ages 14-19. The program is a youth initiative to develop leadership and life skills in young people to impact their health and the health of others. teenREACH members act as health ambassadors by providing health education and resources to their family, friends and communities. teenREACH members also advocate for age-appropriate, medically accurate sex education and an open dialogue with parents/caregivers to help young people make life sustaining healthy decisions.
teenREACH believes that Real Education and Advocacy Changes Health. At the completion of the program, participants in teenREACH receive a minimum of 50 hours of peer education and advocacy training to prepare them to share information with peers, parents, legislators, community organizations, and the general public.
