The focus of this youth development program is to inspire youth and teach them the skills they need to be positive leaders among their peers and within their community.

Youth participants learn about important health educations topics, including alcohol awareness, HIV prevention, sexually transmitted infections (STI) prevention and family planning. Peer educators and staff are available to hold workshops on various sexual health topics for youth programs and classroom presentations within San Francisco.

Workshop topics include:

  • • Reproductive Anatomy and Confidentiality
  • • Sexually Transmitted Infections and HIV
  • • Birth Control Awareness
  • • Drug and Alcohol Use Awareness
  • • Healthy Relationship and Communication Skills

Each year, we hire volunteer peer outreach educators and provide them with a stipend. Volunteers apply for a yearlong position from August to June. We’ve already got a great team this year, but if you think you would like to help other young people learn the real deal about HIV, STI’s and pregnancy prevention, please contact us.

If you would like to apply for the 2018-2019 Adelante! Youth Leaders Advancing Health Equity youth program, paper applications are available at our Excelsior and Shotwell Teen Clinic sites as well as an English-Spanish bilingual online application available at: https://goo.gl/forms/5iaC2RxgKIBpanL23.
