We know that young people have questions.
That’s why, at Planned Parenthood, there are no questions too embarrassing to ask.
Young people benefit from access to facts and information about their own bodies. Our education programs serve more than 30,000 people every year. We provide an open door to teens who may not have an adult to answer questions, and to the adults who may not have all the answers.
Planned Parenthood’s Youth Education Programs include a variety of honest, age-appropriate presentations, trainings, and programs offered in classrooms, on campuses, or in community settings.
Customized Topics and Presentations (60 minutes each)
