Program Description

Healthy Teens is dedicated to empowering youth to make positive, healthy decisions for their success and wellbeing. We provide them with the knowledge and skills needed to make informed choices about their physical, mental, and emotional health. We do this primarily through the Teen Health Educator Program, training high-school students to become peer-educators and mentors serving at-risk youth in their community. Healthy Teens achieves its success by working together with a grassroots group of over 180 individuals representing more than 60 nonprofit and social service agencies, including community-based health providers, the Manatee County School District, Manatee County Government, and several faith-based entities. We engage young people, parents, community leaders, and policymakers to ensure that our youth have access to the tools, education, and information that will equip them to make positive, healthy, decisions, putting them on the path for a more promising future.

Points of Interest

HEALTHY TEENS PROGRAMS TEEN HEALTH EDUCATOR PROGRAM: Through our award-winning flagship program, we extensively train selected high school students (14-19)about critical youth health issues. The Teen Health Educators then work in small teams to provide peer education and mentoring throughout the community and state with a special focus on helping vulnerable youth. YOUNG ADULT LEADER PROGRAM: Graduates of our Teen Health Educator program, Young Adult Leaders have completed high school and have at least one year of committed experience as a Teen Health Educator. If invited onto the YAL program, they receive additional training on career and effective leadership skills. They then serve in expanded, paid roles as leaders and mentors for our high school-age Teen Health Educators. TRAUMA LEADERSHIP CORPS: After extensive additional training on trauma and self-care, the Trauma Leadership Corps, comprised of Young Adult Leaders and Teen Health Educators, supports other youth and youth-serving providers in responding to stress and trauma. The TLC also raises community awareness about the power of youth peer-to-peer training and support. TEENAGE PARENT PROGRAM: Healthy Teens has been proud to support the Teenage Parent Program (TAPP) for a number of years. This wonderful program supports pregnant and parenting teens to complete their high school education while receiving critical information and help to care for their new baby. It is a privilege to support these young women, and men, as they seek to ensure the best possible future for their family.
