Youth Education

Preparing young people for healthy futures with high-quality sex education

 

We believe in sex ed that works.

 

All youth should have the information they need to make healthy, informed decisions about their own sexual health. This is why we deliver medically accurate, evidence-based and evidence-informed curricula. 

We work in schools, community and summer programs, and we have a broad menu of curricula that can benefit your young people.
