Preventing teenage pregnancy requires education. Education about sex. Education about prevention. Education on how to communicate with partners. Education on safety.
Introducing the Youth Lounge. The Youth Lounge is an after-school program in a lower income communities. It’s simply a “Hangout Spot” for teens. A place where they will not be judged, where communication is encouraged, and open door polices are in place. The idea is for teens have a place to go after school that provides them safety and away protects them from high risk sexual behavior.
The Youth Lounge will have gaming systems, computer labs, cable televisions, and so much more. Not only will the youth lounge be fun, but we will also offer tutoring, mentorships, sexual education classes to parents and teens.
The Youth Lounge will introduce options to these teens. We will show each teen what doctors, dentists, and lawyers look like and working in these professions aren’t impossible to do. The Youth Lounge gives our teens HOPE.
