How does this program make a difference?

This program matters and makes a difference in the communities we serve because it provides youth a safe space to be able to have authentic conversations and learn about healthy vs. unhealthy relationships. Our program takes a holistic approach when discussing preventative sexual risks and other risky behaviors that are more likely to lead towards an unhealthy relationship.


Since starting this program in 2020, we have heard from youth about how better prepared they felt after our program to start making healthier choices not only in their relationships but other spheres of their lives as well.

What is in it for you?

Is there a stipend?

Yes – $50 Gift Card for completing 75% or more of the program.
