Parents and guardians play an essential role in ensuring their children have healthy lives.

Our programs designed for parents, caregivers, and trusted adults empower adults to talk about sex and relationships with their teens and prepare them to navigate healthcare. We offer several programs to support parents and guardians. We offer virtual or in-person programs for your parent group, and we can coordinate it with implementation of our youth programs, like Big Decisions and On My Way.

Key conversations

Key Conversations is offered in one or two interactive parent sessions where participants gain a better understanding of teen development, the importance of supervision, tips for improved communication, overcoming barriers to talking, and how to build stronger relationships with their children. This curriculum is ideal for parents/caregivers who have adolescents ages 12-18. Interested in implementing this?
