Community Health Education
WE ARE HERE FOR SCHOOLS, COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS, PARENTS/GUARDIANS, AND YOUTH!
Our Community Health Education program provides comprehensive sexual health information, support, and access to services designed to assist teens in making educated and healthy choices. Our curriculum is medically accurate, culturally relevant, evidence-informed, and age appropriate. Presentations (available in English or Spanish) are designed to complement existing curricula and are available on a variety of topics including: sexually transmitted infections, contraception, consent, healthy relationships, and family communication.
Comprehensive sexual health education includes information about abstinence as well as the benefits of condoms and the myriad options for contraceptives. Comprehensive education on sexuality helps youth delay the initiation of sexual intimacy and make safer choices when they become sexually active. Countless studies show that youth who receive science-based comprehensive sexual health education at home and at school:
Remain abstinent and delay the onset of sexual activity;
Increase correct and consistent use of condoms and contraceptives;
Reduce the number of sexual encounters, and
Reduce the number of sexual partners
