Education and Training

Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon is dedicated to helping young people develop healthy attitudes and behaviors that serve them well throughout their lives. For over 50 years, we have been committed to providing positive, comprehensive sex education for both youth and adults, as well as training for those who work with and care about young people.

As the largest and most respected providers of sexuality education in Oregon, our programs reach more than 8,000 youth and adults each year. We provide workshops and trainings for parents, faith leaders, educators, and others who work with families and youth, with the goal of expanding the network of supportive adults who are prepared and available to teach young people about their sexual health.


Programs for Youth

We know that when young people have accurate information, skills, and the support they need, they can and do make smart, responsible choices for their sexual health. 

Planned Parenthood is working to ensure a community in which all youth are provided the tools they need.

Promotores de Salud Program

Promotores de Salud is a Latino/e sexuality and reproductive health program. Modeled after Central American and Mexican education programs, Promotores de Salud is a bilingual, peer-led initiative aiming to expand access to sexual and reproductive health information and care to Latino/e youth, families, and the greater community. 

Programs for College and University Settings

PPSO supports young adults in accessing sexual health and relationship information that addresses their unique stage of life. 

Trainings for Youth-Serving Professionals 

All Professional Development Trainings aim to promote inclusive, accurate, and empowering sexuality educators and youth-serving professionals in the communities they serve. They are facilitated by highly trained PPSO Community Educators either in person or virtually on Zoom.

Resources and Programs for Schools and Youth-Serving Organizations

PPSO provides age-appropriate sessions for elementary, middle, and high school youth in school and community settings.

Our medically accurate programs are enthusiastically received by teachers, parents, and students. Our community educators support teachers in addressing specific Health Education Standards and Oregon State Benchmark Categories.

Resources for Parents and Caregivers

PPSO offers support and resources for a variety of communities, including parents and families. Check out these resources for parents, caregivers, and families navigating conversations around sexuality! 

REVolution Youth Leadership Program

REVolution is a powerful youth leadership program that engages young people in educating their communities about sexual health issues and policies that are relevant to their lives.

We believe young people have much to contribute and provide youth partners with opportunities to empower themselves, educate their peers, network within their communities and create positive change.
