Advocates for Youth sponsors Let’s Talk Month. Observed each October by states and communities throughout the country, Let’s Talk Month emphasizes the importance of young people and the adults they trust talking about sex.
Advocates for Youth recently updated its Let’s Talk Month Planning Guidebook. The guidebook provides strategic tips and examples to help local communities plan and implement activities for Let’s Talk Month. It also includes fact sheets, guidance for involving youth and working with the media, and sample forms.
The Let’s Talk Month activities implemented in your community or state this year can make a huge difference to teens and their families and can also offer a good basis from which to build more inclusive and multi-faceted initiatives in the years to come. In fact, when community leaders and organizations are committed and work together to make an impact this year, Let’s Talk Month planning will continue throughout the year.
Please join Advocates for Youth in making Let’s Talk Month an effective year-round catalyst to highlight and promote sexual health information and services for teens. Also, please let Advocates for Youth know what you are planning and if Advocates can help. Please send your questions and examples of campaign materials to Advocates for Youth’s Division Director TTP/Adolescent Sexual Health Services, Laura Davis at:
