SHAPE

Group Minus MentorsWHAT IS SHAPE?

SHAPE stands for Sexual Health Awareness & Peer Education. The group was founded in 2002 as a youth-directed peer education program focused on educating youth about all types of contraception, STIs, and general sexual health information.

WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY?

SHAPE is a unique program because it is youth-led. This means that your talents and interests will influence and guide the program. Some outreach activities, such as Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day and National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy will occur each year; however, the direction of SHAPE and its impact on the community will change depending on the members. Being a member of SHAPE will allow you to become an expert on sexual health issues, provide you with leadership skills, and provide an outlet to make a positive change for youth in Boulder County.

  • Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day
  • Youth Action Day
  • Condom Zaps
  • Retreats
  • Classroom Presentations
