B-SAFE Project

Bridges Sexual Awareness and Family Empowerment

The B-SAFE Project is a confidential and voluntary clinical sexual and reproductive health program for teens (up to 22 years of age).
The program offers classroom presentations, clinical therapy, groups, and 1-to-1 confidential educational sessions.

Topics and issues addressed include: STIS/STDS, sex, consent, healthy/toxic relationships, contraception, sexuality, gender, body image, sexual anatomy, pregnancy, boundaries, mental health, communication and pornography.

The program promotes healthy and informed decision making through preventative and accurate education, open dialogue, and by creating a confidential space to process and explore information, thoughts and feelings.

Through program collaboration, referrals and on-going education and support, B-SAFE has seen a significant decrease in the number of unplanned pregnancies throughout all sites they are located. Studies show that comprehensive sexual and reproductive health education not only decreases unplanned pregnancy and spread of STDs but also dating violence, bullying and sexual assault. It also promotes an increased awareness of self-worth and identity.

B-SAFE works with students and school personnel to promote tolerant school climates, where all are treated with respect and dignity.

B-SAFE also works with young parents, advocating and navigating systems, making referrals and offering ongoing support.
