What is Teen Council? Planned Parenthood of Montana Teen Council is made up of students from area high schools in each of our health center communities.
Members make presentations to middle and high school classes, act as consultants for Planned Parenthood Educators, and are resources for their peers. They also have the opportunity to help teach young students and their parents about puberty. Throughout the year members receive training on topics such as sexual decision making, birth control, sexually transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS and more.
Teen Council’s Vision is to provide accurate, unbiased, and useful sexuality education; to end ignorance, promote tolerance, and improve communication between teens and the important people in their lives.
The Teen Council is made up of members with a variety of beliefs and viewpoints. Each member contributes to the council in her or his own way. We welcome diversity. No one is expected to come into the group already knowing about sexuality. Rather, we hope everyone who is selected comes ready to learn in an atmosphere that is fun, supportive, and engaging. We strive to create a strong and diverse group. Students from diverse backgrounds (race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation) encouraged to apply.
Interested? Anyone entering 10th, 11th, or 12th grade for the 2014-2015 school year is able to apply. Please contact your local Planned Parenthood of Montana Educator for more information!
