SB 89 Youth Factsheets & Accompanying Case Manager Guide
With the passage of the California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (SB 89), all California foster youth age 10 and older are required to be informed of their reproductive and sexual health rights annually in an age and developmentally appropriate manner.
As part of the Los Angeles Reproductive Health Equity Project for Foster Youth (LA RHEP), John Burton Advocates for Youth has developed a series of youth fact sheets for case managers to communicate this important information. Accompanying the youth factsheets is a guide that includes age-appropriate conversation starters to help them navigate these sensitive conversations. Fact sheets are available for three developmental groups: tweens/early adolescents, middle adolescents, and transition-aged youth/young adults.
