The Teen Prevention Education Program (Teen PEP) is a comprehensive, sexual health program that utilizes peer-to-peer education to increase students' knowledge, attitudes, skills, and behaviors associated with healthy decision-making.
Teen PEP is implemented in high schools as a course for-credit that meets daily. Carefully selected senior students are enrolled in the Teen PEP course and provided with educational training that addresses a range of topics related to sexual health. The peer educators, in turn, conduct a series of structured workshops with groups of younger peers.
The program was developed in 1995 through a collaboration of the Center for Supportive Schools, HiTOPS, Inc., and the primary sponsor, the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services.
