Summary

Give young women the reproductive health knowledge and life skills they need to build self-confidence and hone their leadership abilities through this peer-based leadership program.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Less than 50% of women 14-19 receive reproductive health services and education. In California, women of color, immigrant women and working class women in particular are hit the hardest. With limited access to reproductive health services, many lack the resources and knowledge needed to feel comfortable with their sexuality and make healthy decision about their sexual activity.

How will this project solve this problem?

This program uses cross learning through Women-centered exercises, women run clinic tours and consciousness-raising.

Potential Long Term Impact

Sessions will have 10 participants, ages 13-19. The newly graduated participants provide positive word-of-mouth to their friends and family, creating a referral network while building leaders trained in reproductive health education.
