Planned Parenthood partners with more than 100 community organizations, colleges, resource centers, and other diverse groups through tabling events and community education. Our innovative health education program encourage young people to make healthy decisions, and empowers teachers, parents, professionals, and caregivers with the tools needed to have honest discussions with the young people in their lives.
INFORMATIONAL EDUCATION SERVICES (60 minutes each)
Our interactive educational sessions provide education specific to a particular subject to encourage youth between the ages of 12-24 to make healthy, informed decisions regarding their sexuality and health. This program brings culturally appropriate information on a variety of topics to address different needs of youth, and can be offered in classroom or community settings.
