WeARE provides education programming to youth and the community on reproductive health. WeARE committed to the vision that all youth, young adults, and the underserved in the Brainerd Lakes Area have access to accurate, evidence-based reproductive education. We aim to empower youth and young adults to make informed decisions about their health and well-being.
WeARE launched a monthly education series with The Shop in 2015 called “Sx Talks.” The program is structured to provide evidence-based info about sexual health to at-risk youth. Programs include birth control, STIs, sexting, pornography, and healthy relationships.
Let’s Talk sessions include educational programming at community partner organizations like Port and the Mid Minnesota Women’s Center, and includes monthly Lunch & Learn talks at Central Lakes College. Contact us to coordinate a Let’s Talk session at your location.
