Wish List for Creating Resources to Help Youth-Supporting Professionals Address Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health

Share

This Wish List of strategies for creating resources for youth-supporting professionals is meant to guide resource developers in the creation of resources for youth-supporting professionals who work on behalf of youth with experience in the child welfare system, the justice system, and/or homelessness and opportunity youth.

These strategies are meant to help improve the content, design (e.g., format), and dissemination of resources that address adolescent sexual and reproductive health.

This Wish List is based on a needs assessment conducted by Activate: The Collective to Bring Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Research to Youth-Supporting Professionals and informed by the experiences and recommendations of an alliance of researchers, youth-supporting professionals, and young people.

If you are somebody who creates resources for youth-supporting professionals, we hope you incorporate these strategies into your work.
