MEMPHIS, TN — Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region and the YWCA-Immigrant Women’s Services are offering a ten-week healthy relationships course especially for Latina teens aged 13 to 17 called ¡Cuídate!, which is Spanish for “Take Care of Yourself!”

¡Cuídate! is an evidence-based and culturally-sensitive course designed to reduce sexual risk behavior among Latino youth. The class will be conducted in both English and Spanish and will teach teens useful information about healthy relationships, safe sex, abstinence, and sexually transmitted infections. The class is fun and gives young Latinas a chance to ask questions about health and sexuality in a safe and respectful environment.

The class will meet each Monday, June 7th to August 9th from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm at Gaisman Community Center, 4221 Macon Road. It is free, but registration is required. To register, please call YWCA-IWS at (901) 458-2550.

The parents of all students enrolled in the ¡Cuídate! class will be given a $5 gas card!
