Providing Comprehensive Sexual Health Education to Foster Youth: Lessons Learned from an LA Pilot
The California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (Senate Bill 89) went into effect on July 1, 2017. Among its provisions is a requirement that the county child welfare caseworker ensures that every youth age 10 and older receives comprehensive sexual health education once in middle school and once in high school. For youth who don’t, the case plan must document how that requirement will be met. This web seminar discussed a strategy counties can consider to meet this requirement, featuring the results from a pilot in Los Angeles County of the Making Proud Choices! curriculum.
