Activate Collective Releases New Reproductive Health Resources
Supporting youth-serving professionals with evidence-based tools
Chapin Hall, in partnership with Child Trends, is developing research-informed sexual and reproductive health resources for professionals who work with or on behalf of Activate’s focal youth populations:
- Youth involved in the child welfare or justice system
- Youth experiencing homelessness
- Opportunity youth (youth who are neither working nor in school)
Activate conducted a needs assessment to identify gaps in the availability of sexual and reproductive health resources for professionals who work with or on behalf of Activate’s focal youth population. Based on the results of that needs assessment, as well as reviews of existing resources, Activate has developed and disseminated resources that translate research into practice.
The project is funded through a grant to Child Trends from the Office of Population Affairs (OPA) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The documents available here include a brief overview of Activate and six resources whose development was led by Activate’s Chapin Hall team members.
