… and for Peer Health Exchange
Empowering Teens to Make Healthy Decisions
Peer Health Exchange equips teens with the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy decisions. This year PHE DC will reach 1,100 ninth graders attending public schools in the District. Behind this accomplishment is the investment of time by the high school students we serve, the tireless dedication of the college volunteers who teach teens our comprehensive health education curriculum, and the unwavering commitment of PHE’s partners and supporters.
You can share with Peer Health Exchange DC in the Holiday spirit of giving by being part of the Peer Health Exchange Washington, DC Winter Appeal! Their goal for this winter appeal is $10,000. To help them achieve their goal, you can donate online by clicking here, or you can send a check to Kellye McKenzie, Peer Health Exchange, 600 New Hampshire Ave. NW, Lobby North, Washington DC 20037. Please make sure to designate your gift to PHE Washington, DC whether making your contribution online or sending a check.
Much work is needed to improve the health and life outcomes of teens living in DC.
According to the 2012 CDC Youth Risk Behaviors Survey, among 9th graders in DC: 1 in 4 did not use a condom during their last sexual intercourse; 4 in 10 have tried marijuana; nearly 1 in 10 has attempted suicide one or more times.
Your support will fuel Peer Health Exchange’s mission.
For $250, you can sponsor one high school student’s participation in 13 PHE workshops. For $5,000 you can sponsor an entire classroom. For $25,000, you can sponsor one high school so that all of its ninth grade students receive the health education they deserve.
