Advocates for Youth
Advocates For Youth (Advocates) champions efforts that help youth make informed, responsible decisions about their reproductive and sexual health. The organization believes strongly in both the right of young people to comprehensive, accurate reproductive and sexual health information and services, and in the power of youth development. Using its 3Rs Philosophy (Rights, Respect, and Responsibility), Advocates works to shift the societal paradigm of adolescent sexuality away from a negative emphasis on fear and ignorance toward the acceptance of sexual development as healthy and the belief that adolescents are a valuable resource. Staff provide information, training, and assistance to youth-serving organizations, policy makers, youth activists, and media in the U.S. and in low- and middle-income countries. The organization’s domestic and international initiatives provide a unique opportunity to disseminate “lessons without borders” within the adolescent reproductive and sexual health (ARSH) field.

“I love this initiative! In my 25 years at Advocates for Youth, I can truly say that AMAZE is one of my favorite projects! It’s fun and creative and meets young adolescents right where they are!  What a joy to be a part of something so innovative and yet so educational!”
– Deb Hauser, President, Advocates for Youth.
