Our mission is to lead North Carolina to improve adolescent and young adult sexual health. So what does that actually look like on a day-to-day basis?

On any given day, you’ll find us:

  • Helping communities and schools implement effective, age appropriate sex education
  • Providing top-notch professional development and resources to people who serve and impact North Carolina youth
  • Increasing awareness of adolescent sexual health, including teen pregnancy, its root causes, and effective solutions
  • Working with health care providers to make services more accessible and welcoming to young people
  • Strengthening parents' voices in communities and in their own families
  • Helping communities reach the most vulnerable youth
  • Working directly with youth to provide information and advocacy opportunities

Our work focuses on putting proven strategies into practice, and on helping North Carolina’s communities, leaders, young people, and families do the same.
