Parent/Askable Adult Trainings

Our trusted adult trainings focus on best practices for supporting young people who are transitioning into adulthood and may include: reviews of stages of adolescent; discussions around appearance ideals, body confidence, and self-esteem; and how to talk to youth and young adults about their sexual-reproductive and mental health. Our Trusted Adults trainings also include trauma-related ones on topics including child abuse, domestic violence, and cyberbullying.

Youth-Friendly Healthcare

The Youth Friendly Healthcare Training Series provides trainings and technical assistance to healthcare providers, staff, and centers with the tools needed to become more youth-friendly. Trainings cover topics such as best practices for youth-friendly healthcare, minors’ rights, and barriers to youth-friendly healthcare. We also help health centers assess their youth-friendliness by working with youth from the local community to do clinic walkthroughs and secret shopper activities.
