Peer counseling programs are structured for young people to acquire training and to provide accurate information and effective behavioral counseling to their contemporaries. This community health nursing project provides a design for peer counseling in sexuality targeted at the prevention of teenage pregnancy. The target school is a predominately African-American school with a high percentage of students who are either pregnant or teenage parents. This project outlines a complete step by step guide for the development and implementation of a peer counseling program for teenage pregnancy prevention. It also includes a detailed training curriculum which is modified to give the program an African-American frame of reference for effective intervention with African-American teens. This design can be easily adapted and used for the creation of peer counseling programs in other schools, churches, and community organizations.
