Devin Schmidt and David Sigler work with some of the 8th grade boys. For five weeks, eight dedicated high school students came down once a week during their 7th period class to encourage 8th graders to choose abstinence. They follow a state-designed curriculum created to inform and help students make wise choices.  Several schools in Idaho use the PEAK (Peers Encouraging Abstinent Kids) program and many feel it has had a positive effect in lowering teen pregnancies. Through PEAK, students also addressed other issues facing teenagers today.
