Our Work

Initiative
Teen Sexual Health and Education Now in State Environments (Teen SENSE) is a multidisciplinary initiative that works to secure the right of youth in state custody to comprehensive, LGBTQ-inclusive sexual health care and sexual health literacy programs. This includes ensuring that staff of foster care, detention, and other government-operated and -regulated youth facilities are equipped to understand and protect all youth in their care, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Experts in adolescent medicine, public health, sexual health education, child welfare, and juvenile justice engage with community organizers and youth advocates to develop a complete advocacy model and coordinate its implementation.
