Sexual Health Advocacy through Peer Education (SHAPE)

SHAPE strives to create an environment in which high school students can engage in open and honest discussions centered on sexuality and reproductive health. In SHAPE, Brown student volunteers encourage Providence high school student engagement and empowerment through learning about healthy relationships, anatomy and physiology, contraception, STIs and more.

In SHAPE 1 classrooms, Brown students provide accurate and up-to-date information on sexual health-related topics. Our more advanced curriculum, which is used in SHAPE 2 classrooms, engages students in discussions about gender and sexuality, sex in the media, body image, as well as sex and culture.
