WE'RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR A FEW NEW REVOLUTIONARIES
Each year, Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon recruits a team of enthusiastic, outspoken, and creative high school students for its youth action council — called REVolution (or REV, for short). REV includes students from several Eugene-area high schools, including Churchill, Sheldon, South Eugene, Springfield and Willamette.
REV stands for many aspects of the youth council's vision:
- Reach Every Viewpoint;
- Realize Every Vision; and
- Respect Every Voice.
REV sets its own agenda for the school year, with activities such as
- Creating connections with school-based health centers and work toward providing better resources and information to students about sexual health
- Conducting public awareness projects
- Participating in public affairs activities (letters to the editor, tabling, etc.),
- Organizing and judging a condom cover contest, and
- Organizing a Town Hall Forum, to give youth an opportunity to speak out to adults and voice their concerns about sex.
