Students Teaching About Responsible Sexuality is PPSNE’s teen peer education program.  The goal of STARS is to effectively impact the development of healthy sexuality among youth by promoting healthy relationships through responsible choices. Teens are trained to respond to basic questions from their peers on sexuality-related topics and to know when and how to skillfully make referrals.  In addition, students facilitate workshops at a number of conferences for their peers and advise PPSNE on matters relevant to teens.  Currently, PPSNE employs 90 STARS in programs held in Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven, New London, Stamford and Providence.
