The Education Department at Planned Parenthood of Western PA works to improve the lives of youth, parents, and families in western PA by providing educational services across the region, including comprehensive sexuality education to school-aged youth, professional training to youth-serving providers, community workshops, and support to parents.
Our team of educators come from diverse public health, education, and youth-development backgrounds. They are relatable, knowledgeable, and nearly unflappable, handling dozens of difficult questions weekly with sensitivity and frankness. They employ a strengths-based, highly interactive approach to instruction and work to adapt to the needs of each unique group.
Our curricula are age-appropriate, medically-accurate, and informed by a growing body of evidence around what is effective to help people, and youth in particular, live sexually healthy and responsible lives that set the stage for healthy futures. We seek to meet people where they are and to act as a resource for teachers and professionals who support youth each and every day.
