In partnership with Los Angeles Reproductive Health Equity Project for Foster Youth (LA RHEP), John Burton Advocates for Youth is convening a statewide community of practice of STRTPs and transitioning group homes related to sexual & reproductive health of youth in care. This project follows the passage of the California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (Senate Bill 89, 2017).
Does Your Organization Want to:
- Promote positive, healthy and comprehensive sexual health education and services among the youth in your care?
- Equip staff members with tools and training for challenging topics?
- Ensure policies and procedures comply with state law and reduce organizational risks?
- Reduce the risks youth and young adults in foster care experience related to unintended pregnancy, prenatal and birth outcomes, and sexually transmitted infections?
- Receive technical assistance, tools and training to align policies and procedures with state laws, regulations, licensing standards and guidance;
- Share and integrate evidence-based practices into their organization; and
- Convene for a kick-off in Los Angeles with ongoing video zoom conference calls and trainings.
