Dear Prospective Participant:
Thank you for your interest in participating in the Wake County Human Services/NC State Cooperative Extension Peer
Youth Education Volunteer Program (PYE-VP). The PYE-VP was created in 2012 as an initiative of the Wake County 4-H
Youth Development Public Health Team and the WCHS HIV/STD Community Program.
The primary objective of this program is to reduce the rate of teen pregnancy, HIV/AID’s, and Sexually Transmitted
Infections (STIs) among Wake County youth. We plan to achieve this by educating and training high school students,
through an experiential learning approach, about various sexual/reproductive health topics. Additionally, participants
will learn best practices related to Peer Youth Education in order for them to educate other teens about the
consequences of sex.
As part of the PYE-VP, participants will take part in several trainings in which they will:
? Learn about teen pregnancy, HIV/STIs;
? Learn about effective ways to prevent teen pregnancy, HIV/ STIs such as abstinence and condom use.
? Build skills in decision making, communication, assertive refusal, advocacy and assessing resources.
? Be empowered to resist pressures, clarify personal values, communicate and negotiate around risk behaviors,
and learn to use a condom correctly.
? Make use of naturally occurring “friendship groups” to strengthen peer support of alternatives to risky behaviors
and educate other teens about the consequences of sex.
? Strengthen parental/guardian involvement and family support for avoiding risky behaviors through
Additionally, participants will have further professional growth and development opportunities.
Parents/guardians play a major role in the success of our participants in this program. All parents are asked to provide
support to their young people in keeping their commitment to the program. PYES will participate in a panel interview to
join the program, attend group meetings, and complete all tasks assigned. In addition, all parents will be asked to sign a
Parental Consent Form.
Program participants have expressed how excited they are to learn about teen pregnancy and HIV/STI’s prevention, how
rewarding it is to make an impact on their peers, and how much they enjoy being part of a supportive group of young
people working towards a common goal to improve their community. We are always excited about adding new
members to our team!
If you are interested in participating, attached you will find a more detailed overview of the program, information about
the commitment necessary to participate, information about the benefits of being involved, an application, and
contracts. Please share the information with your parent/guardian and submit all paperwork including resume and
application to us by mail, email or fax. Please feel free to contact us at any time with questions or thoughts about the
