Peer Health Exchange (“PHE”), is a national non-profit organization that gives teenagers the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy decisions. We do this by training college students to teach a comprehensive health curriculum in public high schools that lack health education. Since our founding in 2003, we have trained more than 5,000 college student volunteers to deliver effective health education to over 57,000 public high school students in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, and the San Francisco Bay Area, and will be expanding to Washington, DC, in fall 2012. We recently launched our 2011-2015 Strategic Plan. The plan has three major priorities: deepening impact, investing in more robust program evaluation, and developing and testing additional methods for impact, all while serving 100,000 teens over the next three years. To achieve these priorities, we will grow from a staff of 40 and a budget of $9.5M today to a staff of over 100 and a budget of $14M in 2015.
