  • Trained by Makhampom – motto “ when kids play, their sub-consciousness comes out”. Used activities they taught to conduct focus group…
  • Misunderstanding:Condoms – used to polish shoe, don’t really know how to use it.Emergency Contraceptive – “protects against HIV” HIV – “lose weight, become ugly, and DIE” Should there be more technical training? Not just delay of first sex, but SAFE SEX. TOT – training of trainers?
  • Peer Educators –why conservative? 1. because they think that is what we want to hear, 2. because they are taught conservative views and not challenged to think for themselves. 3. because they really believe what we may believe is “conservative” (which is okay). Teachers – the conservative attitude really effects their students’ ideology. Schools with more liberal teachers (like Sadet School) have more liberal students. Liberal students = students that can accept alternative views on sexual readiness. Also –teachers tend to table students as “risky” and “no risky”. Non-involved teachers are often not informed of this project, and therefore have a non-supportive attitude when peer-counselors ask for permission to be absent from class when they participate on out of school projects. Administrators – administrator’s acceptance and positive attitude is a key ingredient to the success of the program. Funding, support for equipment, space and facilities for activities are greatly depended on the open-mindedness of administrators . Vocational vs. High School – how are they different? 1. it is normally accepted that vocational school students have had sexual experiences, and high school students are not. 2. different life experiences and future goals. 3. different values
  • Other Projects – “To be number 1” anti-drug project, “Jr. FDA” food safety projects
  • Vocational school and High school project because they have difference need on reproductive health infoShould create some incentive to the school ie, competition or promotionShould have a lot of PR ie, billboard in town , local radio etc.Should have continuously on human resources so it will be more efficient on evaluationShould protect privacy and info of every individual and form a database
  • YAP has received the National Standard of Youth Friendly Services, and decided to use their opportunity in Lampang to extract recommendations from young people to the Ministry
  • ADD YAPS thoughts on these recommendations…

    9. 9. Knowledge<br />Many peer-educators lack comprehensive information on…<br />Basic Health & Hygiene – Masturbation, Wet Dreams<br /> “ ช่วยตัวเองก็ดีสิไปเรียนเทควันโดก็จะได้ป้องกันตัวเองได้”<br />Contraceptives – Condoms, Emergency Contraceptives <br />STI/HIV – very general & stereotypical symptoms<br />Almost every school’s sexual education curriculum comes from PATH<br />All peer-educators were said to be trained by PPHO – delay of first sex & sex negotiation <br />
    10. 10. Attitude<br />Peer Educators: mostly surprisingly conservative. <br />Teachers: mostly conservative. Tend to preach “ ______” <br />School Administrators: varies.<br />Vocational vs. High School: different. Vocational schools are much more open.<br />** Should Improve the Attitude of ALL <br />to better accept SAFE SEX as a RIGHT!** <br />
    11. 11. The Project<br />Selection Process = typical “teacher’s pet”<br />Peer-Educators are unclear about their roles… <br />Mix up with other projects<br /> Counselor vs. Outreach activities <br />Awareness of Peer-Educators is still low: non-involved students did not know of the project and services<br />“Be My Friend” log books may not be the best or only way to monitor project<br />
