Teens PACT

Positive Actions and
Choices for Teens
(Teens PACT) Program

Our Positive Actions and Choices for Teens (Teens P.A.C.T) Program annually selects a group of teens that are dedicated, creative, outgoing, and natural leaders who have a strong desire to positively impact their peers and community through the prevention of teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, and HIV among youth in New York City. The Peer Leader Program is designed to help young adults develop solid work experience and important interpersonal skills. Peers host workshops, attend team building seminars and write and produce our YouTube-famous Public Service Announcements.

Activities include:

  • Comprehensive, evidence-based curricula (Be Proud Be Responsible, Reducing the Risk and Making Proud Choices) are offered in middle schools and high schools.
  • Learning annex and life skills workshops
  • Annual youth conference
  • Peer Leadership Program
  • Media Campaigns (see our public service announcements made by youth for youth

We believe that all young people will act responsibly when they have access to honest, accurate sexual health information and respectful, confidential health services.
