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.
At least once or twice a year, we open up the Teen Health Educator program to new applicants. See the flyer below for more information about our program, and sign-up to our emails to receive the latest news, including on when applications will next open.
Applications open on June 1. Until then you can fill in this form to register your interest. We will email and text you a link to the application form on June 1, and send you reminders unless you tell us not to.
