PROGRAMS & SERVICES
Our entire program is educational, right down to the athletics. However, we sometimes need a little extra support. FOCUS Youth Center staff is available for individuals in a one-on-one sacred space. We also have other free educational classes available to youth and parents.
Low socioeconomic circumstances in communities have been linked to higher teen birth rates. Unequal education and underserved preventative procedures for families with teens, low-income households, fewer opportunities for positive youth involvement and poor neighborhood surroundings are major factors that lead to increased teen pregnancies. Children in the welfare systems are also at risk of teen pregnancy more than others. We support and assist in administering long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) methods for high-risk sexually active teens.
TEEN PREGNANCY & STD PREVENTION
We implement a Safe Zone training program designed to help teach staff the proper knowledge to create and foster environments that are supportive and safe for LGBTQ teens.
