"The aim of Project Health is to provide high school students with a comprehensive health education. 15% of high schools within the Los Angeles area do not offer a health education to their students, while at the same time, high school marks the beginning of independence, when teenagers begin to make their own decisions regarding their health and relationships. This creates an information gap that hinders students’ abilities to make responsible decisions about health, and we hope to shrink this gap so that students are able to make knowledgeable decisions. Our eight workshops, covering Mental Health, Drugs, Alcohol, Sexual Decision-Making, Abusive Relationships, Communication, STIs, and Nutrition, meet the California Department of Education’s Health Education Content Standards, while still presenting the information in a unique and interactive manner. With these workshops and the support of Project Health Educators, high school students are encouraged to think responsibly about their health."

What We Do

We conduct health workshops in schools around Los Angeles and facilitate discussion about these topics. It has been shown in multiple studies that having peers teach teenagers about health topics facilitates a more open environment in which teenagers think critically about the information presented. Through in-depth discussions, our highly trained educators, all UCLA undergraduates trained in teaching, public speaking, classroom management, and cultural sensitivity, encourage students to apply the health facts to their community and personal experiences.
