About STEP

Our Purpose

Students Teaching Early Prevention (STEP) on STIs is a program aimed at prevention of disease through education. The program is supported by first and second year medical students who travel to local middle schools to teach students, in a non-judgmental manner, about the nature, epidemiology, and prevention of sexually transmitted infections. 


Our goal is not to impose our values on the audience. We simply seek to present the facts which will enable others to make educated decisions that will reduce the risk of STIs.

STEP on sexually transmitted infections requires attendance at one lunchtime training session, and we ask that all volunteers commit to teaching at least two one-hour classes at a local middle school. Resources are available for use in the teaching sessions.
