Who we are

Teen Council is made up of a diverse volunteer student body from local schools. Members come to the group with different beliefs and viewpoints and no one is expected to already know about sexual health and prevention issues. We strive to create a Council that is strong and varied in its membership and work actively to build a group that is anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-homophobic.

Teen Council vision

Through the power of peer education, using accurate, values neutral sexuality education, Teen Council will end ignorance, promote tolerance, and improve communication between teens and the important people in their lives.
