Teen Pep - Ms. Horton & Mr. Oliver
Teen Prevention Education Program, or Teen PEP, is a senior health & physical education elective where students are trained as peer educators to conduct outreach workshops for underclassmen, in particular the freshman class.  These workshops include a variety of skits and small group activities that are led by the peer educators on topics including postponing sexual involvement, pregnancy prevention, STIs/STDs, HIV/AIDS, sexual harassment, dating violence, and homophobia reduction.  Seniors are trained in leadership and communication skills, as well as sexuality issues in order to provide accurate information to students and serve as sexual health advocates and resources for their peers.

In order to join this program, there is an application and interview process that begins in the third marking period of junior year.  Students are selected based on previous leadership, faculty recommendations, involvement in school activities, and performance in the group and individual interviews conducted by the advisors and current peer educators.  Selected students will attend a mandatory three-day leadership and team-building training in the spring with the advisors.

The teachers/advisors for Teen PEP are Ms. Kelly Horton and Mr. Kevin Oliver.  If you would like to learn more about the program, please email us or visit the New Jersey Teen Prevention Education Program website using the link below.
