Through our award-winning flagship program, we extensively train selected high school students (9th-12th grades) about critical youth health issues. The Teen Health Educators then work in small teams, supervised by an adult leader, to provide peer education and peer mentoring throughout the community and state with a special focus on helping vulnerable youth.
Priorities are set on an annual basis after examining the current major issues facing youth. Topics for education include mental health, trauma, sexually transmitted diseases, healthy relationships, bullying, social media safety, and substance abuse.
Applications for the program are currently closed and will open again in summer 2023. If you are interested in applying, please fill in the form below. When applications are open, you will be the first to know!
