"Teen Health Mississippi has helped me to be more vigilant and more open to new ideas, and it allows me to voice my opinion."

What happens when you take 10 Mississippi youth and ask them to advocate for better sex ed in schools? Progress. Mississippi Youth Council offers a platform to talk about why you believe in the need for comprehensive sex education.
To inform is to influence. And using social media is a powerful way to support Mississippi youth when it comes to sexual health and mental well-being. Influencers with the Mind Elevation (ME.) Project are making a difference, one post at a time.
Our youth partners in Coahoma, Harrison, and Hinds Counties take sex education to the next level. MYVoice Educators are collaborating with Teen Health Mississippi staff to develop and implement better sexual and reproductive health lesson plans.
MYInnovation is a training program design to empower young people (ages 18-24) through research and program development training. Selected MYInnovators will complete a ten-month program and receive training and technical assistance to develop interventions that increase access to treatment and preventative healthcare services for young people living with or at risk of acquiring sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Upon completion of the MYInnovation incubator program, MYInnovators will pitch their interventions to funders.
