Resources for Youth in Florida
A note from AMAZE
Here at AMAZE we envision a world that recognizes child and adolescent sexual development as natural and healthy, a world in which young people everywhere are supported and affirmed. The AMAZE project provides young people, around the globe, with access to the information and support they need to develop into sexually healthy adults.
Sexuality education in schools varies from state to state, city to city, and district to district. This variation in instruction and educational policy has led to gaps in the sex education of young people.
This page aims to support young people in geographic areas where sex education is restricted, limited, or absent. We hope the resources shared here will further empower young people to make informed decisions in regard to their sexual health.
Feel free to reach out to [email protected] if you have any questions, or would like your organization to be added to this resource list.
