– Dr. Melisa holmes, OBGYN & Period Education Project Co-Founder
Learn more about the Period Education Project
The Period Education Project is a 501(c)(3) that specializes in improving access to menstrual health education. We provide no-cost educational programs to underserved youth so all menstruators are prepared to advocate for their own health and recognize health conditions — leading to earlier treatment and better outcomes. Educating youth with this essential health education can have a lasting impact on improving women’s health.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can we host this for 10 year olds?
PEP Rallies are intended for youth in middle school through college who are familiar with menstruation, but are ready to understand more about menstrual health. If you are interested in puberty education or basic education about periods for youth below the age of 12, we recommend Girlology which provides video-on-demand and live virtual puberty education programs for young people ages 7-8 and up.
For virtual programs is it better for everyone to view from their own device or as a group?
Either option is fine! For groups that are not physically in the same location, individual screens work well. In order for each individual to participate in the discussion and activities, their device should have a camera and speaker.
In group settings, the screen and speakers need to be set up so the whole group can see and hear it clearly. In classroom settings, it works best when the camera faces the classroom so the Period Pros can see their audience. It is also helpful for the teacher to encourage participation with the activities. When questions arise, it can be difficult for the Period Pros to hear participants who are not close to the microphone, so the facilitator/mentor may need to repeat the questions for the Period Pros.
Is this ok for boys?
Yes! We encourage people of any gender to join our PEP Rallies. Boys and men have traditionally been left out of menstrual health education, but it’s important for everyone to understand menstrual health so they can be the supportive and informed friends, citizens, and partners that they want to be. The more we educate the world, the faster we eliminate stigma, normalize menstruation, and improve healthcare for all people who menstruate.
For in-person programs, can we have it at our house?
No. Period Pros are only able to offer in-person programs in public settings such as schools, faith communities, or community centers that are within a 20 mile radius of their medical school campus. If you would like to host an in-person PEP Rally, and are outside the 20 mile radius, please contact us.
