The December 2001/January 2002 issue of BAACHUS and GAMMA’s The Peer Educator reviews components of promising peer-led sexual health programs. The review highlights how peer education promotes sexual health and reduces high-risk behaviors among teens. It is believed that teens find peer educators more credible than adult educators.
