Make an impact

90% of young people served plan to use something they learned in a PHE workshop to make a healthy decision.

Nearly one-third

of adolescent girls who drop out of high school cite early pregnancy or parenthood as a key reason.

Less than 38%

of adolescents in low-income communities have had a preventative care visit in the last year.

Peer Health Exchange's Mission

Peer Health Exchange's mission is to empower young people with the knowledge, skills, and resources to make healthy decisions. We do this by training college students to teach a skills-based health curriculum in under-resourced high schools across the country.
