Peer Education

Research shows that teens get most of their information from other teens and prefer talking to someone of their own age about personal concerns.

Peer education programs have been used as public health strategies to promote various positive health behaviors.

PPSO’s REV youth receive extensive training on health, sexuality, presentation techniques, and answering difficult questions – strengthening their leadership skills. PPSO’s REV Peer Educators provide accurate information in presentations to middle school students on topics such as healthy relationships and consent. REV Peer Educators will strengthen their peers’ skills in building healthy relationships, communication, consent and decision making with content tied to Oregon Department of Education’s Standards and Guidelines for Sex Education.
