October 28-30, 2019

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.

Registration for the 2019 conference is now open. Register by August 30th to take advantage of Early Bird savings!

Healthy Teen Network is excited to host several Pre-Conference Institute options at the 2019 Conference, including a one-and-a-half day (1.5 day) ASSECT-certified Sexual Attitude Reassessment Seminar (SAR), several intensive full-day sessions, and a half-day session on different topics in the field.
