CE: Providing Comprehensive Sexual Health Education to Foster Youth

Online Webinar

The California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (Senate Bill 89) went into effect on July 1, 2017. Among its provisions is a requirement that the county child welfare caseworker ensures that every youth age 10 and older receives comprehensive sexual health education once in middle school and once in high school. For youth who don't, the case plan must document how that requirement will be met.
Please join John Burton Advocates for Youth and LA RHEP for this webinar to learn about one strategy counties can consider to meet this requirement. The web seminar will feature the results from a pilot in Los Angeles County of the Making Proud Choices for Youth in Out-of-Home Care curriculum.
Information to be provided includes an overview of the Making Proud Choices curriculum, lessons learned about how to organize comprehensive sexual health education in a community-based setting for foster youth, and information about how to organize and fund this model in your county.
