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.
Life Skills: Teens Realizing Opportunities and Choices (T-ROC)
What it is:
Teens Realizing Opportunities and Choices is a Planned Parenthood Life Skills Program. This 6-session series covers the basics of reproductive health. The program helps young people build skills to make responsible, informed decisions about their health and risk-taking behaviors.
Trained Health Educators lead honest, open discussion with teens about:
- Dealing with societal messages and myths about sexual health and sexuality
- Prevention of teen pregnancy and HIV/STDs
- Community resources
- Reproductive rights and the Family PACT program
- Personal planning, including short and long-term goal setting
Who it’s for:
Youth and teens (ages 12-19)
