The goal of the AFC jeunes (French Association for ContraceptionYouth ) is to inform young people by young people (peers) about contraception so that they can achieve a well-being in the love relationship and sexuality. Indeed, we observed that the information to be delivered passes more efficiently when young people speak to young people in festive environments and not within the constrained framework of the school environment in a teacher-taught relationship. For this purpose, Participants during the festivals, have the opportunity to become familiar with contraception by meeting young people trained by the AFC on this subject (peers). Peers walk to meet the festival-goers or receive them at the booth of the AFC inside the festival. They provide information on contraception using a quiz. If necessary, they will provide also them with information on where they can obtain contraception, the prices and resource persons. So finally, that they can have access to contraception independently. As festival participants are mixed it is also a rare possibility to inform the boys who rarely visit family planning.  Peers are young volunteers who are interview by AFC officials to know their motivations. They receive initial and continuous training, which provides them with a common framework to which to refer as well as a space for exchanges. A trainer is always present physically at the festival venue to answer any questions or problems they may encounter. It should also be stressed that this training also enables them to acquire technical skills, knowledge of the environment and a knowledge of the being (acquire a better knowledge of social psycho-social competence / charter of Ottawa, charter of Shanghai). Trainers are the members of the AFC who in particular have chosen to be involved in this activity. Trainers and peers are required to adhere to the values ​​of freedom, independence, responsibility and confidentiality. The trainer and trainee have a duty of confidentiality regarding any information they hear. Are also key element: respect - respect of the choices expressed by the people - impartiality - tend towards non-judgment - empathy. The AFC Jeunes has trained about 150 young people since 2008. They are able to promote contraception in festive places with young people of their age, to be resource persons with the young people of their surroundings and to use these skills for themselves, A European meeting was held in Paris on 30 September and 1 October. It allowed us to share our experiences in France with people from Belgium and Spain. This meeting confirmed the interest of working together. Projects are being developed. Dr E.
