Would you like to get involved? Consider joining out TIPS Program
Teen Information and Peer Services (“TIPSters”)
As a teen peer educator in our TIPS Program, you can provide accurate information about reproductive health issues in your school and community. Our TIPS Program is a peer education project that trains teen educators to offer health and sexuality information and referrals to other teenagers of Rockland County. To become a TIPS peer educator, you participate in 30-hours of training to learn how to present educational programs on human sexuality, abstinence, sexual transmitted infections, birth control, HIV, and decision making. You’ll also participate in other health-related programs and leadership trainings. All of our peer educators are recruited from local high schools.
We recruit TIPSters every winter to begin training in the spring. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Lauren Sordellini, Education and Training Projects Coordinator at [email protected].
