Our mission is to empower, educate, and motivate adolescents to make informed decisions for their sexual health.



By giving young people the knowledge, skills, and confidence to protect their health, build positive relationships, and expand opportunities for their future.



By partnering with schools, parents, caring adults, and young people to provide quality sexual health education to adolescents without judgment, shame, blame, or guilt.



By inspiring young people to make informed decisions about their sexual health, relationships, and life choices in ways that respect their voice and encourage them to reach their potential.

Peer Education

Students are more likely to retain information when it’s provided from their peers, which is exactly why we developed the Peer Education Model for teens to learn about healthy relationships.

Programs & Resources

Our programs are designed to provide quality sexual health education and help local youth access sexual health services and other key resources.
