The MSAHC health educators (HealthEds) are trained mental health and medical professionals who provide educational workshops on topics that include life skills, healthy eating, and sexual reproductive health.  Education is provided on-site at our center and off-site at our school based health centers and community based organization partners, including middle and high schools.

The HealthEds also train, educate and mentor youth ages 15-21 to become peer educators through the SPEEK (Sinai Peers Empowering Education through Knowledge) program.  The training focuses on sexual and reproductive health education, adult preparation topics, and supportive mentoring partnerships. Once trained, peer educators work during the school year, outside of school hours, and must commit a minimum of five hours per week. Hundreds of adolescent peer educators have been trained through the SPEEK program over the past 25 years, providing workshops and educational sessions for over 70,000 teens.
