FYI Peer Educators participate in over 40 hours of education sessions over the course of two semesters. In these education sessions, Peer Educators learn about sexual decision making, birth control, sexually transmitted infections, healthy relationships, consent, communication, gender, sexual orientation, body image, and more. Through role plays, discussions, and activities, they gain valuable skills to help them communicate about these topics. With this knowledge and skills, Peer Educators commit to having conversations with their peers throughout the year to provide accurate, non-judgmental information on sex and relationships. Peer Educators answer questions, debunk myths, and seek out opportunities to provide young people more information about sexuality issues
FYI Peer Educators also participate in community advocacy on issues such as comprehensive sexuality education, sexual assault awareness, safer sex, LGBTQ+ rights, HIV stigma, and more. These advocacy events range from information handouts, speaking on panels, visibility events, skits, and even meeting with legislators.
Each spring, FYI Peer Educators host a photography exhibition called Framing Choice. Framing Choice is a photography exhibition where Peer Educators showcase photographs they have taken to depict choices or decisions young people often face in their lives.
