Y4C (Youth 4 Change) has added a new element to our community mobilization efforts regarding adolescent sexual health. On Wednesday, February 8th, 2012 we will be introducing our first educational theater piece at our first community conversation of the year. The topic is Stigma and how it creates barriers for adolescents to properly care for their health. The young people of Y4C have hit the ground running with their acting skills and preparing skits that will not only capture an audience’s attention, but it will create a perfect avenue for legitimate discussion on topics such as; teen pregnancy, homosexuality, bullying, STD prevention, and parent/youth communication. These topics are sensitive but need to be addressed so our young people have a level of comfort to openly discuss their concerns and also get the proper health services that they need. This is the first of hopefully many Y4C educational theater performances, so stay tuned!
The event, A Community Conversation on Stigma & Adolescent Sexual Health, will be held on Wednesday, February 8, 2012, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m., at Action for a Better Community, Action Front Center, 33 Chestnut Street, 2nd Floor Rochester, NY 14604. Both youth and adults are invited. Let's start the dialog!
