REV Youth Leadership Program

REV is a youth leadership program with over a decade of history fostering amazing youth who are passionate about sexual and reproductive healthcare issues, public speaking, peer-to-peer education, and youth action and advocacy. 

REV youth work together with PPSO facilitators to gain leadership skills, plan outreach events, become community advocates, educate their peers, train professionals, and educate parenting adults.

Joining REV is a great way to do all this while get volunteer hours, learning more about sexual and reproductive health and rights, and building a community. 

“This experience helped me understand sexual health and sexuality to a greater extent in an open and caring environment with like-minded peers. I valued this experience because it helped me become more open and comfortable with sexuality and health and with healthcare in general.”

- REV alum, 2016-2017

“REV allows youth to advocate for what they believe in, improve their public speaking skills, and spend time with like-minded individuals. These experiences have been incredibly beneficial for me.”

- REV alum, 2015-2018

Interested in joining? 

REV is open to all high school students in the Eugene/Springfield area. Members must be ready to be Planned Parenthood volunteers, and committed to learning about the issues. Members are enthusiastic, dependable, ready to grow, and able to work well with others.

REV is made up of youth of all genders, sexual orientations, races, religions, physical & mental abilities, and socioeconomic statuses. Members come to the group with different beliefs and viewpoints. No one is expected to have any previous knowledge or education about sexual health and prevention issues. We strive to create a community that is strong and varied in its membership and work actively to build a group that is anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic, and anti-transphobic.

REV is a commitment! REV meets once a week throughout the school year for 2-3 hours with many opportunities for projects and activities outside of regular group meetings.
