Coming soon:
A Manual for Sexual and Reproductive Health Capacity Building in Foster Care Organizations 

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

Create organizational policies and practices that support sexual health education and referrals for youth

Implement a training series in four sessions for foster care professionals

Enhance the physical environment of foster care agencies with informational materials and healthy messages

Endorsement from the Senior Director of a Foster Care Agency

"We faced the realization that despite our expertise in clinical care, sexual trauma, PTSD, and working with LBGTQ and transgender youth, we did not have a policy to convey clear messages about how staff should talk to youth about sexuality. Thanks to the capacity building, we were able to provide staff with a set of organizational messages to share, rather than relying on their own personal values. And the health centers, family room, and peer-led spaces were transformed and stocked with sexual and reproductive health resources for youth. I cannot say enough about the value of this capacity building."
