STRTP Reproductive Sexual Health Policy and Practice Guide
Please join John Burton Advocates for Youth for a webinar marking the release of the STRTP Reproductive & Sexual Health Policy & Practice Guide, developed as part of JBAY’s work with the LA Reproductive Health Equity Project (LA RHEP).
The guide is intended to equip Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Programs (STRTPs) with model policies and practices across seven focus areas to improve an organization’s capacity to comply with legal requirements set forth in the California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (Senate Bill 89), licensing standards, and best practice regarding the reproductive and sexual health rights of foster youth. While the guide focuses on STRTPs, the majority of the recommendations are applicable across foster care placements and programs.
