Healthy Teens

Our Programs

Healthy Teens’ programs – and overall work – are grounded in science, data, and current and accurate best practices in youth education and engagement. Our programming and curriculum fill a profound gap, historically and currently, in health education/services in our local community. 

Teen Health Educators

Through our award-winning flagship program, we extensively train selected high school students about critical youth health issues.

Teenage Parent Program

Teenage Parent Program

Healthy Teens has been proud to support the Teenage Parent Program (TAPP) for a number of years. This wonderful program supports pregnant and parenting teens to complete their high school education while receiving critical information and help to care for their new baby. It is a privilege to support these young women, and men, as they seek to ensure the best possible future for their family.
