Our youth development programming expands educational, social, recreational, vocational and economic opportunities that provide adolescents alternatives to sexual activity. This facilitates the acquisition of life skills that support a successful transition into healthy young adulthood. Through our programs, youth in North and Central Brooklyn are becoming knowledgeable about their sexual and reproductive health, and have access to information and resources in their communities that will empower them to make responsible and proud choices.
