Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands (urban)
Project Overview: Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands (PPGNW) intends to prevent teen pregnancy and sexual transmitted infections in the LGBTQ youth population. In order to achieve this goal, PPGNW implements the In.clued program delivered in 14 communities through the PPGNW Teen Council Peer Education program. Each teen council group will deliver trainings to two different audiences: 1) IN.clued for health care staff and providers, a three hour workshop delivered by peer teen educators in two 1.5 hour segments that include best practices for working with LGBTQ youth; and 2) IN.clued for LGBTQ youth, a three hour interactive workshop delivered by teen peer educators to their peers who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer/questioning. The workshop includes education related to sexual risk prevention and information about how to access sexual health services. Read the evaluation abstract here.
