February 14th – 21st marks National Condom Week! For this month the peers learned all about condoms, from the history of them, to the various types, as well as how to correctly put one on! We ended our meeting with making condom pops to pass out into their communities while providing education!
For January, several of our peers volunteered during the historic OC Women’s March. They passed out water bottles and other informational material to the march attendees. They were incredibly helpful, and they all played an important role.
In honor of World AIDS Day being December 1st, the peers had a discussion surrounding HIV/AIDS, the stigmas associated with it, and how they see it in their communities. They also decorated hotline cards that they passed out to their peers while educating them on the importance of STI testing.
In honor of Movember the peers learned about men’s health! We made mustaches with men’s health’s facts on them so the peers can go into their communities and spread the info!
In honor of October being National Domestic Violence Awareness month the peers ran a clothing drive and were able to collect a ton of clothes! Very special shout-out to those star peers who participated!
