Peers In Action class of 2013

Peers In Action (Yearlong course, 10 credits) 

  • The Peers In Action Program is a yearlong peer education elective course that meets daily where students receive 5 elective units. Any Sophomore, Junior or Senior who has completed the Lifeskills course is eligible to apply. The main focus of the class is to conduct health presentations on topics such as abstinence, birth control, STI's, alcohol and drug prevention and healthy relationships. The presentations are student-designed and are a very effective means of educating youth on the important issues that affect today's teens. The Peer Educators are also responsible for educating their classmates on student led topics such as healthy relationships, tobacco, alcohol/drugs, and nutrition, fitness and body image and planning an annual school wide community health fair. 

 

 

Power Of Wellness (POW) (meets every Tuesday, 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm)

  • YAB is the Youth Advisory Board of the Logan Health Center. All members receive community service hours for their participation. The group serves as a forum for youth to provide input into health center policy and function. YAB members accomplish this by providing feedback to health center staff and serve as an important evaluation tool for the center's services. YAB also serves as a means for youth to actively promote health to their peers. They accomplish this by developing school wide "health tips" and PSA’s that air on Logan Live, the schools daily video announcement program or hosting workshops and health fairs. Additionally, YAB is also known to participate in many community activities that promote leadership, community involvement and civic participation. For the upcoming year, YAB will organize health fairs and develop health campaigns. YAB meets every Tuesday during 5th period lunch in the Health Center. 

Hip-Hop Elements Program (meets Tuesdays and Thursdays after school in Staff Lounge)

  • The Hip-Hop Elements program is a forum for students interested in creative expression through hip-hop. The program focuses on several areas of hip-hop, which include the following: the art of being a Disk Jockey (DJ), Graffiti Art, Breaking Dancing, Master of Ceremony (MC)/Spoken Word, Poetry, Men and Women’s Hip Hop Dancing/Choreography. This past year Hip Hop Elements brought to the campus many performers to speak about their experiences, organized "Mayhem" events during lunch, as well as educated one another on the five elements of hip hop. In addition, the Graffiti Art Element produced a beautiful mural titled “Educate Yourself,” located next to the Logan Health Center (facing H Street). For the upcoming year, these participants shall continue organizing exciting hip hop events with a health focus and developing their hip hop element skills. For more information, please contact Kevin Torion by stopping by the Health Center or stop by the Staff Lounge every Tuesday and Thursday after school.
