Students in schools have an important role to play in their own sexual health education. They are underutilized resources, capable of delivering prevention education programs in a way that impacts significantly their own lives, the lives of their peers, and the overall quality of their schools.

In this session, participants will examine strategies and lessons learned from an evidence-based, high school peer education program.
