Planned Parenthood provides age-appropriate, evidence-based, comprehensive education for youth in schools, community groups and youth serving agencies.
PPCW's education programs for teens and young adults are based on the belief that young people have the right to accurate information and confidential information, that they deserve respect as valued and contributing members of their communities, and that society is responsible for providing them with the tools to act responsibly and secure a stake in the future. All of our programs are developed from research-based approaches that reach young people effectively and positively impact their decisions and choices.
