Prevention Education: Sexual Risk Avoidance
Do you need access to accurate information on STDs, testing and treatment? Are you a teen that has questions about health or sexual development? Are you a parent or youth leader struggling to communicate with your kids on these important topics?
Hope Clinic is here to help.
At Hope Clinic, our aim is to educate, counsel and assist young people, youth leaders and parents regarding sex, intimacy, sexually-transmitted diseases, unplanned pregnancies, healthy relationships and setting boundaries. Talking about these topics shouldn’t be taboo; there should be a safe place for you to ask questions and share your struggles. Hope Clinic's prevention staff is equipped to handle your most difficult questions and inquiries. We promote healthy choices and sexual risk avoidance among youth and young adults. While we have a focus on abstinence, we also explain the benefits and costs of birth control.
Why We Need Prevention Education:
- Females between the ages of 15 and 19 years old have the highest risk of contracting an STD. (The Center for Disease Control)
- About 50% of all STDs occur in people under age 25. (The Center for Disease Control)
- One in three high school students experiences either physical or sexual violence, or both, at the hands of someone they are dating or going out with. (Break The Cycle: breakthecycle.org)
