Our Parent programs help those who are unsure of how to talk with their children about sex become more prepared to teach their values, handle difficult questions, and become “askable.”
We are also available for community outreach events and health fairs.
Fees for educational programs and trainings are based on a sliding scale and may be negotiable.
Community education by request: Having a community event or health fair? Need a workshop for a youth group? Our educators are trained to tailor a variety of sex ed curriculum to meet your needs.
Free Condoms Tennessee
Free Condoms Tennessee is a campaign designed to reduce the spread of HIV by encouraging the correct and consistent use of condoms. The program provides free condoms and other safer-sex supplies at partner sites around major cities in Tennessee and encourages condom use through education and a public information campaign using traditional and social media. Planned Parenthood of Tennessee and North Mississippi is the lead agency behind the campaign, which is funded through HIV prevention funds provided by the Tennessee Department of Health and other funding sources.
