THE SEXUAL WELLNESS ADVOCACY BY TEENS (SWAT) PROGRAM
Sexual Wellness Advocacy The Sexual Wellness Advocacy by Teens (SWAT) Program aims to create an “army” of youth who are trained as peer educators to promote healthy sexuality and reproductive health, including HIV, STI, and unplanned pregnancy prevention. In addition to increasing participants’ own knowledge of these topics and how to communicate key information to their peers, the program aims to establish a culture of openness and self-respect around sexual and reproductive health in LAYC youth and contribute to decreasing HIV and STI incidences and pregnancy among youth in Washington DC. Youth execute an outreach project at the end of the course to spread their knowledge amongst peers and solidify what they have learned. SWAT programs are taught at middle and high schools in the DC area, creating improved partnerships with LAYC and opportunities to do outreach for testing services.
