Time for Your Teen

Program Details

One of PPSENFL’s most important goals is to engage parents in the effort to help their teens develop healthy, responsible attitudes and practices related to sex and reproduction. PPSENFL knows that parents and caregivers are the primary sexuality educators of their children. To grow into sexually healthy adults, young people need skills and information to help them delay sexual activity and to protect themselves when they become sexually active.

Time For Your Teen is an online or in-person program that brings teens between 13-19 and their supportive adults together to learn how to share family values and strengthen bonds to talk about the tough stuff–such as sexual health. The purpose of the program is to promote healthy behaviors and reduce risk-taking among young people, breaking communication barriers, engaging in confidential parent-child interactions, and broaching sensitive topics that include their sexual health to support healthy decision-making.

Throughout the program, parents/caregivers and trusted adults will develop their skills in/understanding of (a) opening lines of communication with their child; (b) utilizing teachable moments; (c) new ways of communicating; (d) listening when discussing sensitive topics; (e) getting past roadblocks in talking about sex; and (f) helping youth make decisions about abstinence, contraception, and overall healthy relationships (romantic, peer, and trusted adults).

Teen Time

We also provide youth sessions, called Teen Time, that are intended to provide families time to connect with each other and gain skills so they can have effective communication for handling difficult conversations surrounding sexual health and youth development.

Teens will develop their skills in/understanding of: (a) communicating with their caregivers regarding their feelings surrounding sexual health topics; (b) understanding STI and pregnancy prevention strategies; (c) increase their decision-making skills to increase healthy behaviors.

Time for Your Teen is offered in Alachua County, Broward County, Duval County, Leon County, Miami-Dade County, and Palm Beach County in various community-based settings. Time for Your Teen is available in English and Spanish.
