Peer Education Institute

In 2011, PPGNW created the Peer Education Institute (PEI) to support the replication of the Teen Council peer education program nationally.

Teen Council is an award-winning peer education program that inspires and trains teens to become effective and passionate sexuality educators and advocates. Research shows that peer educators make a lasting impact in their communities. When students see a peer presenting about social situations and pressures with confidence and knowledge, they listen.

The Peer Education Institute (PEI) prepares, supports, and certifies replication partners to deliver the Teen Council peer education program in their communities. PEI partners have access to a complete package of resources that ensure program success. With a how-to manual, one-on-one technical assistance, access to in-person and virtual trainings you will have all you need to create a successful and sustainable Peer Education program tailored to the needs of your community.

Find out more about Teen Council, PEI, and how to join by visiting the Peer Education Institute website.
