Make Sexual Health Education Happen in Your School: A Guide for Advocates and Administrators
This guide (PDF) is based on the work of a coalition called the Minneapolis Urban Initiative (MUI), which formed with the goal of making sexual health education available to middle and high school students in Minneapolis, MN. Coalition members decided to document the coalitionâ??s work so that it could serve as a model for making sexual health education part of the educational agenda in other school districts. To that end, this guide is developed to assist educators, advocates, administrators and parents who hope to make sexual health education available in their schools.
The Board and staff of Teenwise Minnesota are excited to share our newly adopted strategic plan outlining the goals, strategies and expanded work that we will be engaging in over the next three years.
In addition to this plan, you can find Teenwise Minnesota's newly adopted Vision, Mission and Guiding Principles on our website.
If you have any questions or would like to share your ideas or need more information, Teenwise welcomes the opportunity to talk with you. Please contact Executive Director, Judith Kahn at email@example.com or at 651-289-1382.
