I started Tea Time and Sex Chats to provide positive, comprehensive, peer-led sex education to my fellow students at the University of Chicago. One hundred people came to the very first session! Each one had questions about all sorts of things they never felt comfortable asking their parents or doctors. Being a member of Advocates’ Young Women of Color Leadership Council gave me the training and education to feel confident tackling these issues and answering questions honestly.
Now, whether I’m leading a workshop, working with youth activists, or connecting them to resources, I know Advocates for Youth has my back. I am driven every day to make sure that all young people have access to the resources and information they need to live the healthiest life possible.
Advocates for Youth puts young people side-by-side with policy makers, educators, health care professionals, and the media to produce meaningful change in the policies and programs affecting youth sexual health and rights and show young people as leaders of today.
It’s not for everyone. And for Advocates for Youth to do its work to put young people front and center, it takes your support.
