Peer Contraceptive Counselors (PCC) is a group of male and female undergraduate students who counsel on issues related to sexual health, contraception, STIs and testing, relationships, dating, and other topics related to sexual health. Our office is stocked with different brands of condoms, lube, dental dams, female condoms, and more! Counselors are on hand and can be reached by phone during our hours to answer any questions and provide information and non-directive, non-judgmental counseling. Founded in 1977, PCC is the second-oldest peer counseling group at Harvard.
Visit our office to pick up free condoms, lube, and dental dams, check out our library, or say hi and talk! Find out more about our office supplies, our outreach events, and our services here.
What is peer counseling?
Peer counselors offer telephone and drop-in hours, as well as referrals for medical care, psychotherapy, and other services when appropriate. They listen and respond in a non-judgmental way to a variety of concerns common to other students. Coming from various backgrounds and ethnic groups themselves, the peer counselors realize that each person’s experience is unique and reflects differences in class, culture, ethnicity, gender, race, and sexual orientation. Confidentiality and anonymity are guaranteed.
