Exemplary Sexual Health Education in Alternative Schools: In an effort to engage a diverse spectrum of youth and educational institutions, Advocates for Youth is proud to provide the latest information regarding sexual health education in alternative schools. This overview provides an in-depth look at the issues facing youth in alternative schools and how these challenges can be mitigated. Beginning with a brief definition of alternative schools and the education they provide, this paper examines why youth enrolled in alternative schools typically experience negative sexual health outcomes and a lack of adequate sexual health education. Professional development strategies, tips for parent engagement, and a list of workshops, goals, resources and curricula are also provided. DASH-funded State Education Agencies, (SEAs) will receive hard copies of this document at the HHS “Bridging the Gaps: Eliminating Disparities in Teen Pregnancy and Sexual Health Conference.”
