Youth Reproductive Health Outreach Project 2016 Up

It has been a very busy and successful summer for WHS Peer Outreach Workers! Two more training and education sessions were held for ongoing development and creating new messages that continue to encourage sexually active teens, 15 to 19 years of age to access contraception; and to reduce the incidence of gonorrhea in Shasta County. During this time frame, WHS Peer Outreach Workers from the ages 20 to 29 have also been trained to reach this age group in Shasta County.

WHS Peer Outreach workers maintain two-week records of all activities, locations, people and age groups reached, and information disseminated. Information is passed to Outreach Manager who records and stores information for each individual Peer Outreach Worker.Information  is tallied, compiled and submitted to Shata County Public Health at the end of each quarter.

Youth that were hired after the training sessions were made part of an information and education Advisory Group, to provide feedback on process: Group recommended that all peer outreach workers meet weekly and provide feedback from all events and outreach that were completed for the past week. ICE Breaker Exercise, and Role Plays, for on going education for outreach workers from 15 thru 29 years old. Youth Outreach Workers help plan weekly community events and outreach and schedule accordingly.

Number of referral to teen's ages 15 to 19 for contraceptive services: 185% of our target served.

Number of young people screened for Gonorrhea/Chlamydia from 15 - 29 age groups is 79% of our target as of this date.

Positive offered treatment and partners contacted and offered screening/treatment has been 100% of our target.

These Young Peer Outreach workers continue to show WHS and others that they continue to have the power and voice for positive change in their community! Peer Outreach Workers continue to inform, educate, and empower all young people in their community and beyond. Shasta County is on not going to be the  Number 2 county for GC/CZ outbreak in California much longer!
