Teen Pep


Every Northview student is required to take one semester of health class, usually as a freshman, where a whole variety of different topics are crammed into only a couple of months. Apart from the minimal guest speakers, the only other person educating the students on the very controversial and hard-hitting concepts is the health teacher. This is one of the many reasons why Teenpep was created.

Teenpep stands for teen peers educating peers and is all around the area, usually consisting of 10-15 students per school. These members get together to plan different discussions and skits to educate the health classes on topics including bullying, sexual assault, and healthy versus unhealthy relationships.

In order to be qualified for this role, students participate in a day long training at Toledo Hospital once a year.

The group attends health classes for one full day each semester to offer peer guidance and a second voice on these harsh topics. The first semester seminar has already taken place and was a major success.

“They went a lot better than I was expecting,” sophomore Ryan Tussing said.

The second-semester date has been rescheduled due to the frozen four hockey game.
