YEAH believes in empowering young Australians to lead engagement, education and awareness of sexual well being, STI and HIV prevention among their peers. We believe in a holistic approach to sexual health education that focuses equally on the science and the social aspects of young people’s sexual health and wellbeing”
Here’s a look at what some young people told YEAH about their sexual health education:
We help young people safely have conversations about sexually healthy practices and relationships. We create spaces where young people can feel comfortable to ask questions and tell us what they know.
YEAH helps to correct misleading information about sexual health and myth busting!
YEAH provides open, non discriminatory conversation that ensures young people who identify across the spectrum of gender and sexuality are included and equally respected.
YEAH congratulates Rosie Respect for an outstanding compilation of high quality information for young women, contributing to the effort to empower young people with the knowledge and confidence they need to protect themselves from harm and enjoy respectful and pleasurable sexual lives.
