Planned Parenthood of Illinois' ongoing Youth and Teen programs focus on teen pregnancy prevention, comprehensive, age-appropriate sexuality education and promoting academic achievement.
Our Teen Awareness Group (TAG) is a prevention focused peer education program for high school students that provides training to teens to hold forums in schools and throughout the community that educate other teens, parents and community members about making healthy decisions.
The sex education and training that TAG provides is comprehensive, age appropriate, and medically accurate. This "youth" to "youth" education gives TAG members the ability to end ignorance, promote tolerance, and improve communication between teens and the important people in their lives.
Currently, our peer education program reaches teens in Decatur, Bloomington and Champaign, and we are looking to expand into other parts of the state.
