ABSTRACT
Although youth are commonly included in delivering sexual health interventions via peer education, youth seldom play an explicit role in designing the programs in which they participate. This article describes the results of a process evaluation of the Youth Educating About Health (YEAH) program--a unique sexual health intervention that was directly designed and led by youth in Saskatchewan. Canada. Researchers delineated a logic model of the YEAH program for the first stage of its evaluation. Components of the program logic model are discussed in terms of what makes this youth-designed program distinct from adult-designed programs. The findings can be applied to the design and process evaluation of peer sexual health education programs.
