To provide the best health care, and access to that care,
for everyone in our communities.

 

The Mission & Goal of the Teen Awareness Group:

 

To reduce unplanned adolescent pregnancy and STI/HIV infection rates in Warren and Washington Counties of New York State through:

    • Providing and promoting comprehensive evidence-based sexual health education and life skills preparation for youth.

    • Improving youth access to sexual & reproductive health care services.

    • Building  partnerships and collaborations to support local youth moving forward toward adulthood.

 

Our Vision:

 

The Teen Awareness Group envisions a region in which:

    • Youth are knowledgeable about themselves and are empowered to utilize that knowledge to effectively protect their health and well-being.

    • Youth have the opportunity to pursue their educational and vocational dreams without the weight and challenges of an unplanned pregnancy or other reproductive health barriers.
