ACR Health provides comprehensive and LGBTQ-inclusive sexual health education in schools and community organizations for young people ages 10-21 and their parents.

Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program

ACR Health implements a comprehensive and evidence-based pregnancy prevention program to equip youth with the knowledge and skills they need to make informed decisions about their sexual health. Our program serves adolescents between the ages of 10 – 21.

Be Proud! Be Responsible!

ACR Health offers Be Proud Be Responsible, an evidence-based curriculum endorsed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This curriculum has been evaluated and proven to decrease rates of STIs, HIV, and rates of unplanned pregnancies. It provides youth with the tools and resources they need to make healthy and informed decisions. Youth also learn negotiation skills and facts about contraceptives and condom use, which are essential for their sexual health and wellbeing.

Independent Living Skills

These workshops equip youth with the tools to become successful adults. Workshop topics include budgeting, nutrition, job-seeking skills, personal safety, and how to access resources.

Peer Education

Peer Educators meet monthly to assist in developing monthly programming, co-facilitate HIV/STI Overviews, accompany staff at tabling events, and help with planning special events.

Parent Presentations

These presentations equip parents/caregivers to be the primary sex educators for the young people in their life. Participants learn how to communicate with their youth about sexual and reproductive health, including puberty, sex and healthy relationships, and about local resources that help support the overall health and wellbeing of the young people in their life.

HIV and STI Overviews

These presentations targeting youth provide essential information about HIV and other STIs, including best practices for preventing infection. Participants learn how to recognize and prevent HIV and STIs, as well as local resources for HIV/STI testing and treatment.
