Advocates for Youth

Advocates for Youth partners with youth leaders, adult allies, and youth-serving organizations to advocate for policies and champion programs that recognize young people’s rights to honest sexual health information; accessible, confidential, and affordable sexual health services; and the resources and opportunities necessary to create sexual health equity for all youth. We are the authors of the free K-12 sex ed curriculum Rights, Respect, Responsibility (, helped author the National Sex Education Standards (2012 and 2020 editions), and provide training and technical assistance to schools nationwide on all issues relating to sex education.
