Summary

Through workshops, curricula development, teacher training, advocacy, and youth organizing, YWP will ensure comprehensive sexual health education for DC High School students.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Reproductive health is a life or death issue for many DC teens who face the highest rates of HIV and STIs in the US. With little guidance from schools or parents, teens are not equipped to make responsible, healthy decisions. Comprehensive sexual health education is not being taught in DC high schools currently: 12,000 students without critical health information, skills, and services. YWP is filling the gap through peer education, organizing, and curricula development and implementation.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our work is teen-led and includes sexual health workshops, condom distribution, one-to-one peer outreach, school assemblies, curricula development, setting up school-based youth action councils, and working with decision makers to change policy.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will educate 12,000 teen men and women, providing support and options that enable them to make healthy sexual decisions, reduce rates of STIs, HIV, and unplanned pregnancy.
