Some students at Hollywood High may remember them as the goofballs who hang posters around the school, or the Wellness center kids, and much of them may not even have a clue of who they are. If one recalls back to the last pep rally held at Hollywood, videos were shown to represent school spirit such as sports teams, cheer, dance guard, marching band, and the leadership team. However one may have stood out to faculty and students, a silly, catchy, yet informational video introducing the Peer Advocates.
Still the question remains unanswered. From 2015-2016 will be the first year that Planned Parenthood will bring a program that recruits students to help inform those who have questions about sexual health as well to serve as a resource for health services at school. They can direct students to the Wellness Center here on campus and to the Planned Parenthood services all over Los Angeles.
Recently they have held an event Friday, part of spirit Friday’s, many came to play jeopardy to test their knowledge on sexual health and healthy relationships. More events will come in the future so stay informed.
