At Teen emPower! we arm youth with essential and accurate information about reproductive health, building healthy relationships, sexually transmitted infection prevention, pregnancy prevention, effective communication, establishing boundaries and setting goals. Our efforts include leadership, team and asset building which create a solid foundation for confidence and positive self-worth. We teach all of this without judgment, shame, blame or guilt. In doing so, we supply tools to make better choices. When teens make decisions based on confidence and accurate information rather than ignorance, high-risk behaviors decrease and awareness of long-term consequences and life goals increase.
