Through our EveryBody program, we work with schools, after-school programs, and nonprofits to empower young people with medically accurate and inclusive information about their changing bodies.
Many young people today lack critical information about how their bodies work and the protections they’re afforded—only 24 states in the US mandate sexual education and just 13 require that information to be medically accurate (plus, only 8 require the curriculum to be unbiased against any race, sex or ethnicity!).
We’re focused on expanding access to vital information that empowers young people with body literacy. During the 2018 - 2019 school year, we’re reaching more than 800 students across 8 partner sites. At the end of 12 weeks, students who participate in EveryBody will be able to advocate for themselves and their needs, explain the science behind puberty and periods, and evaluate how access to menstrual hygiene can change lives.
About our EveryBody program:
12-week puberty education curriculum developed by experienced teachers and healthcare providers, and informed by the students who participate
Equips all genders ages 10 - 13 with core knowledge about periods, puberty, and human rights
Activity-based and delivered by qualified, trained facilitators
It’s effective! Our post-program assessment shows improved student understanding of reproductive anatomy, greater knowledge of how to manage periods, and increased confidence asking questions about puberty.
