Tools You Can Use: Age-Appropriate, Medically Accurate Sexual Health Fact Sheets Available to County Social Workers

With the passage of the California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (SB 89), all California foster youth age 10 and older are required to be informed of their reproductive and sexual health rights annually in an age-appropriate and medically accurate manner.

John Burton Advocates for Youth has developed a series of fact sheets for social workers to communicate this important information, as part of the Los Angeles Reproductive Health Equity Project for Foster Youth (LA RHEP).  Also developed is a script for social workers to help them navigate these sensitive conversations. The training will be led by adolescent and sexual health expert Erica Monasterio, RN, MN, FNP, who led the development of the fact sheets and accompanying social worker guide.
