PPGNY's Manual for Sexual and Reproductive Health Capacity Building in Foster Care Organizations

Our manual provides step-by-step guidance for sexual and reproductive health experts on how to train foster care staff to:

  • Develop policies that support sexual health education and referrals for youth
  • Implement a four-session training series for foster care professionals
  • Enhance the physical environment of foster care agencies with informational materials and healthy messages

Feedback from Capacity Building Participants  

"[The program] was great overall. The trainings, workshops were really well thought out and I felt like we got a lot done, given the time constraints. The role-plays were really helpful. We don’t necessarily know when conversations with youth are going to happen – youth are exposed to information about sexuality at early ages, with increased access through smartphones and social media. It's good to know we now have a structure in place to address the needs and questions that come up."

“The initial administrator meeting as a group was really helpful to talk through where we were as an organization. That meeting was well conducted and allowed us to feel confident moving into the full staff training. The staff training was conducted and facilitated well. I appreciated the amount of interaction and how varied each activity was.”
