SHAPE (Sexual Health And Peer Education)

Sexual Health And Peer Education Program (SHAPE), Teen emPower!'s innovative peer education program model, recruits and trains high school students to serve as presentation teams for classroom lessons on social and peer pressure, media messages, and assertiveness skills for 7th grade students. Using older teens as facilitators creates a positive and powerful impression on the middle school participants, because they feel the older teens can relate to their lives and experiences. Evaluations have consistently highlighted the use of peer educators as an important factor in the success and impact of the SHAPE program.

The SHAPE peer education program:
• Uses well-trained, local high school students to present information to middle school youth in ways that are engaging, realistic, and authentic, which increase the student’s consumption of the material.
• Provides content that is relevant and developmentally appropriate for the young audience to receive and for peer educators to facilitate.
• Involves careful planning in selecting and training peer educators.
• Includes on-going monitoring and support of the program facilitation and content delivery by an experienced adult educator.
• Is an exceptional learning experience for both the middle school participants and the peer educators, as they gain knowledge, skills, and confidence, while modeling positive health attitudes and behaviors
