Heard of affirmative consent but not sure what it means? Check out our video to get the 101 on affirmative consent and remember, only YES means YES!
Planned Parenthood Mar Monte (PPMM) Peer Educators meet monthly to learn about healthy relationships, sexual health, human sexuality, youth rights, community resources, teen pregnancy prevention, STI prevention and healthy communication skills. Peer Educators then take this information back to their schools and communities to find creative ways to help their peers live healthy, informed lives through presentations outreach and peer support. Peers are required to complete at least 10 hours per month.
Peer Educators empower themselves and others using accurate, unbiased sexual health education. Peers work to promote health, tolerance and positive healthy relationships. Peers also work to reduce misinformation, stereotypes and high risk behaviors among youth in their communities.
Program is open to 9th-12th grade high school student or first year college student under age 20.
A project under the California Personal Responsibility Education Program (CA PREP) funded by the Department of Public Health and Maternal Child and Adolescent Health
