Teen PEP is a group of selected juniors trained in problem-solving, decision making, communication, negotiations, and refusal skills. Through the year the juniors conduct outreach programs including role plays, small group activities/discussions and large small group activities/discussions for the entire freshman class and also the parents. The students become peer educators, effective sexual health advocates and role models. The workshops with peers, parents and educators focus on unplanned pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, other sexually transmitted infections, postponing sexual involvement, sexual harassment, dating violence, homophobia reduction and other sexual health concerns. Workshops include skill-building activities such as communication with peers and parents, problem-solving, decision-making, negotiation and refusal skills.
