The goal of the 4-H PYE Program is to reduce the rate of teen pregnancy, HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) among Wake County youth. This will be achieved by educating and training high school students about various sexual and reproductive health topics using an experiential learning approach. Participants will learn best practices related to peer youth education, helping to prepare them to educate other teens about the consequences of having sex.
