Support SxTalks

SxTalk education sessions are conducted by trained healthcare professionals or visiting community organizations. A question about the monthly topic is included during each program, and participants are rewarded for a written answer. This program is structured to provide accurate information about sexual health, as well as monetary incentives for participation, a meal, and the structure of healthy groupd dynamics for at-risk youth in the community. SxTalk programming provides education for 25-30 youth each month during the school year.

This program costs WeARE about $1000 each year, and we are committed to providing it. If you would like to donate specifically to this program, please do so using the form.
