Trained high school mentors will deliver a 10 session curriculum targeting physical activity to younger teens.
Other Name: peer mentoring
Active Comparator: Planning to be Active

- Health Outcomes [ Time Frame: Change is being assesed from baseline to 9 months ]body mass index (measured), body fatness/percentage (measured)
- Daily Activity of Participants with Accelerometers [ Time Frame: 9 months ]accelerometers; subjects to wear devices for 7 days at each data collection time point
- Daily Activity of Teachers with Accelerometers [ Time Frame: 9 months ]accelerometers; subjects to wear devices for 7 days at each data collection time point
- Ease of Use [ Time Frame: 3 months ]cognitive interviews conducted to assess satisfaction; ease of use, acceptability of curriculum. Conducted with teen mentors and classroom teachers
- Daily Physical Activity [ Time Frame: 9 months ]Participants will wear accelerometers for 7 straight days at each data collect time point
- Healthy Lifestyle Behaviors Scale [ Time Frame: 9 months ]12 item, 5 point Likert Scale asking about participants agreement or disagreement with statements about daily physical activity, dietary habits, and sedentary behaviors.
- Outcome Expectancies Scale [ Time Frame: 9 months ]40 item, 6 -point Likert Summative Scale focusing on psychological determinants of physical activity.
- Exercise Self-Efficacy Scale [ Time Frame: 9 months ]14 item scale that asks participants to rank their own confidence in performing an exercise behavior from 0% confidence to 100 % confidence.
- Outcome Expectations Scale [ Time Frame: 9 months ]40 item, 6-point Likert type scale that asks participants to rank their expectations of what physical activity will do their own health outcomes.
- Social Support from Family and Friends to Exercise [ Time Frame: 9 months ]12 item, 5 point Likert measure asking participants to rate each question twice: Once for family members and once for friends. Questions ask about the perceived social support to engage in physical activity within the past 3 months.
- Self-Regulation of Exercise Scale [ Time Frame: 9 months ]43 item, 6 point Likert measure with 6 subscales asking about: exercise self-monitoring (5 items), exercise goal setting (9 items), planned social support (9 items), self-reward for exercise (9 items), time management for exercise (4 items), and overcoming barriers to exercise (7 items)
- Environmental Determinants of Exercise Scale [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
Participants respond to how household members (dad, mom, brother, sister, grandparent, or other relative) encouraged 5 specified physical activity behaviors.
Participants respond to how strongly they agree or disagree to 6 situations in which their own neighborhood determines their own physical activity.

- Sessions attended [ Time Frame: 3 months ]number of sessions attended by subjects; both classroom and mentoring
- Gender [ Time Frame: 1 month ]male or female gender of participants at start of study
- Grade in School [ Time Frame: 1 month ]Grade in school at the start of study.
- Zip Code [ Time Frame: 1 month ]zip code of primary residence of participants at start of study
- race or ethnicity [ Time Frame: 1month ]self identified race and ethnicity at the start of the study. Race will include: Caucasian; Black/African American; Asian American; Native American; Other. Ethnicity will include: Hispanic or Latino.
