Empowering and Protecting Young People

Young people need honest, accurate information and access to sexual and reproductive health services in order to make healthy decisions.
In order to lead healthy sexual and reproductive lives, youth need comprehensive sex education, as well as access to confidential health services and the opportunity to become empowered leaders.

We work to:

Fight for comprehensive sex education
In order to help all young people stay healthy and safe, New York must invest in age-appropriate, medically-accurate, comprehensive sex education programs that include, among other key components, information about abstinence, contraception, parent-child communication and healthy decision-making.

Protect teen access to reproductive health services

Adolescents face many barriers to accessing the sexual and reproductive health care they need. Teens in New York need to know their rights when it comes to getting confidential health services, as well as where they can find clinics that offer teen-friendly care.

Support youth leaders
The Teen Outreach Reproductive CHallenge, known as TORCH®, is our nationally recognized youth program that combines peer sexual and reproductive health education and leadership training for New York City high school students.
