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.
Teens in this group learn about:
- HIV and STIs
- Goal Setting
- How to make quick tech projects like videos, music, memes, cartoons
- Condoms, birth control choices, and other choices
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.
All groups are NO JUDGMENT ZONES--we don't tell you what to do or if what you're doing is good or bad--you decide, and we work together from there IF you want to do things different. If you’re part of the group, you decide what to work on. Sometimes the Youth Advocates (teens just like you) help run the groups and help you decide how you want to lower your risks, at your own pace and in your own way.
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:
- Free movie tickets
- Ice cream cones
- Coupons for free food at local fast food spots
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.
