Students for Safer Sexuality is a peer education program designed to train 11th and 12th graders to be key agents in the delivery of sexuality education, HIV prevention, and communication skills programs. There were 15 students involved in the first year and 20 students currently involved. Participants are trained to lead discussion groups, present skits and information, and help improve communication and decision-making skills. This paper provides an overview of the program, lists the resources used, and provides suggestions for implementing similar programs. (JE)
