Shame, fear, and stigma in sexual health education, programs, policies, and services won’t magically disappear. It’s going to take a revolution!

We need to change the way we think about adolescents and their sexual and reproductive health. That also means we need to change the ways in which we, youth-supporting professionals, do our work. We need sex-positive attitudes, language, and actions that will create a sex-positive culture—not only for young people but for all people.

A revolution doesn’t happen overnight, but it can happen. Don’t think you are the “revolution-type”? Does “revolution” seem too radical to you? Or too impossible?

If you are intrigued by sex-positivity and all the ways it can improve the lives of young people, you are the “revolution-type”! Join others who believe that we cannot wait to move forward!

The 40th annual national Healthy Teen Network conference is a capacity-building professional development and networking opportunity for professionals who work with youth. Specifically, we will address the need to ensure access to high quality and youth-friendly evidence-based and innovative sexuality education and services, and to shore-up and expand policies and practices that respect and meet the needs of youth and young adults, including those who are pregnant and parenting.

Interested in speaking at #HealthyTeen19? You’re in the right place. For a limited time, we’re looking for workshop and poster presentations.
