We do this by training college students to teach a comprehensive health curriculum in public high schools that lack health education. Since our founding in 2003, we have trained more than 5,000 college student volunteers to deliver effective health education to over 57,000 public high school students in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, and the San Francisco Bay Area, and will be expanding to Washington, DC in fall 2012. We recently launched our 2011-2015 Strategic Plan. The plan has three major priorities: deepening impact, investing in more robust program evaluation, and developing and testing additional methods for impact, all while serving 120,000 teens over the next four years.
