The Peer Health Education Program and Manual for prevention through art by Juan Escobedo

The California Wellness Foundation (TCWF) visits TELA SOFA’s acting program in collaboration with Frida Kahlo High School and Bienvenidos.

Through a grant from TCWF to Bienvenidos, Juan Escobedo has developed a Health Education Manual for students to teach STDs, HIV and Teen Pregnancy Prevention peer to peer.

Juan has taken years of experience in acting and has developed scripts for teens that focus on prevention.

The manual engages youth through art to build the necessary skills to reduce high risk behaviors.

The manual took Juan Escobedo ten years to develop and with the help of Bienvenidos and TELA SOFA it will be publish in 2012.
