Training Peer Educators
Mediation Center staff spent three days last week training Peer Educators at the Morris Heights Health Center at Truman High School. The training created a cohort of peer educators who will contribute to the community, learn about the services of the clinic, and help their classmates navigate sexual health decisions and other issues adolescents face. Topics focused on pregnancy prevention, abstinence, and positive decision making. Throughout the workshops, youth developed skills such as group facilitation, active listening, and how to appropriately communicate about the program.
