the alliance believes
One of the best strategies to help students graduate and improve their overall well-being is to ensure that they have access to medically accurate, culturally relevant sexual health education, affordable resources and confidential services. Unintended adolescent pregnancy and STI rates can be reduced through youth and family engagement, evidence-based approaches to comprehensive sex ed, and advocacy for affordable and confidential resources and services. Through collaboration and building on the strengths in our communities, we advocate, educate and inspire sustainable change at the local, state and national levels. Our work is informed by a commitment to collaboration and by positive youth development principles and practice.
Alliance members identified the need to engage families and cultivate champions to help make a lasting impact on youth sexual health in Colorado. Our Family Engagement Initiative helps families and communities find ways to make a difference together, through our members, local and national networks, shared learning, resources and tools.
