THIS IS THE STUFF THEY DON’T TEACH YOU IN SCHOOL! WE TALK ABOUT SEX, NO FLUFF, THE REAL TALK WAY. A-TECH IS OUR WAY OF MAKING PREVENTION A HOT TOPIC. WE’RE REAL, WE DON’T JUDGE, AND WE DO TALK ABOUT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING—SEX, DRUGS, RELATIONSHIPS, W/E.

During the group we have all kinds of games and activities to encourage healthy relationships, reducing risks for HIV/STIs/unplanned pregnancy, getting tested, cutting down on drugs and alcohol (or not use at all), w/e. NO lectures! This ain't health class.

A-Tech meets for 8 sessions, once a week for about an hour each time. During the group, there are all kinds of games and prizes like:
So while you’re learning, you’re also having fun and getting prizes. To find out where we’re running A-Tech currently and join us, check out our Map or Calendar.
