Model behaviour : how peer educators can change sexuality education for the better Black, Stéphanie


I discuss how peer sexual health educators have proven to be effective in conveying sexual health information in ways that set them apart from traditional sexual health educators. Specifically, I argue that peer educators can be more effective than traditional sexuality educators through their ability to relate to teens on a personal level, through specific training as peer sexual health educators, and by using student-led instruction and meaningful pedagogy in sexuality education. I also discuss the challenges of peer sexuality education.
