Teaching healthy choices

teens learn smart living through Youth wellness

It isn’t easy to talk about.

But the truth is that kids in poverty often don’t receive the education they need to make healthy life choices. They can easily be derailed by the temptations around them.

Children International’s youth wellness program addresses the specific needs of adolescents by providing information on the topics of reproductive health, substance abuse and essential life skills. Through workshops and group activities, teens gain confidence and the ability to make smart decisions.

“On a few occasions, I have been requested by my teachers to come up and explain to the class certain girl and female issues. I also spoke to my friends and peers about it and de-mystified some of the common tales with the more scientific ones.”
