Adolescence is a time of transition from adult children backwards. Teenage life is the life that is crucial for their future life further. In 2010 the number of adolescents aged 10-24 years is very large at around 64 million, or 27.6% of the total Indonesian population of 237.6 million people (Census Population, 2010) Seeing the numbers are very large, then a teenager as the future generation needs to be prepared to be human healthy physically, spiritually, mentally and spiritually. In fact, studies show that teens have a very complex problem due to the transition period experienced by adolescents.
Prominent problem among adolescents, namely the problem of the TRIAD KRR (Sexuality, HIV and AIDS, and drugs), lack of knowledge of adolescents on Adolescent Reproductive Health and the median age of first marriage of women is still relatively low at 19.8 years (IDHS, 2007).
Parents should be responsible for providing first hand information on reproductive health for adolescents, but an opportunity for discussion about reproductive health is still very limited, even still many parents and teachers are considered taboo. Henceforth, the approach
taken to provide support to adolescents in addressing the problem is through the peer, or also called peer educators. Peer education is a process of communication, information and education are carried out by and for the peer group. It can mean a group of teenagers, a peer group of students, student groups.
