Welcome to SHAPE: Sexual Health Advocacy through Peer Education


SHAPE  strives to create an environment in which MET students can engage in open and honest discussion about sexuality and sexual health. In SHAPE workshops, Brown students provide accurate information and facilitate discussion about sex-related topics in a classroom setting.  The basic curriculum covers such topics as anatomy and physiology, contraception, STIs, HIV/AIDS, and healthy relationships. Advanced workshops address gender and sexuality, sex in the media, sex in politics, and body image. In the SHAPE Peer Educators program, Brown students train MET high school students to become peer sexual health educators.

The program is based out of the Brown University Swearer Center for Public Service.
