The Women’s Health Youth Services program supports youth in their efforts to stay healthy and make responsible sexual decisions. Through clinical services, outreach events, classroom presentations, peer education and online social networking, Youth Services reached nearly 10,000 youth last year! Here’s a snapshot of our programs for youth and their adult allies:
Teen Clinic: All services at Teen Clinic are free or low-cost and confidential for patients 19 & under. Teens can be seen during any of our regular family planning hours or during special Teen Only hours at both our Boulder and Longmont locations. See more at the Teen Clinic website: www.teenclinic.org.
SHAPE: The Sexual Health & AIDS Awareness Peer Education program is group of high school peer educators who receive medically-accurate information and training about STI/STDs, birth control, and healthy relationships. These students, in turn, teach their peers through presentations, outreach events, and one-to-one interactions. SHAPE is a collaboration between Women’s Health and the Boulder County AIDS Project (BCAP). Learn more about becoming a SHAPE member or mentor!

Community Health Education: Our Community Health Education program provides youth with medically-accurate, comprehensive sexuality education and access to services. We also provide information, support and resources to teachers, parents and guardians, and youth-serving agencies.
Home-Based Contraception: Youth Services collaborates with Boulder County Public Health’s GENESIS program to help make birth control more available to already-parenting teens by providing an RN who travels to their homes.
Online Outreach: Youth Services is wired! In addition to our comprehensive and interactive website, we’re on Twitter and Facebook. We were also first in Colorado to have an anonymous sexual health text message line so youth can get answers 24/7.
All of our clinical and educational services are free or low-cost and confidential. For more information on our services for teens and their adult allies, visit our Teen Clinic website designed for youth, by youth.
