Imagine a world where sexuality is understood as an essential, lifelong aspect of being human and that it is celebrated with respect, openness and mutuality.
At Planned Parenthood that's our goal - to provide Community Education programs for parents, teens, agencies, schools and faith communities that will provide information and skills to create a world where sexuality is respected and valued.
Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley's Education Department provides reality based, interactive programs rooted in scientifically accurate information about sexuality and reproductive health. Our educators are here to help you get the answers you need. Resources are always available to provide parents, teachers and individuals with the tools necessary to promote sexuality education. Contact us at (845) 838-1200, ext. 107 or at [email protected] for more information and to make arrangements for programs.

Advocacy When You Need it Most
Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley provides advocacy and support when you need it most. Our programs include support groups, referrals, education and advocacy with resource networks to assist you in reclaiming your power.
Many parents feel at a loss when they try to talk with their children about sexual development and puberty issues. We want to support parents in their role as the primary sexuality educators of their children. See video of actress Mae Whitman talking to her mom about sex.
