The Whitman-Walker Health Schools Team strives to increase schools’ capacity by offering sexual health education to students, supporting teachers as they deliver sexual health education, and providing youth with the information and resources to help them make positive decisions that protect their health and increase their ability to stay in school. All of our programs provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for all DC Public and DC Public Charter Schools.
- Making Proud Choices (MPC) is our CDC-approved, evidence-based curriculum geared toward middle school students. MPC provides a series of fun and interactive learning experiences regarding making healthy decisions around HIV/AIDS teen pregnancy and drug prevention.
- Becoming A Responsible Teen (BART) is our high school curriculum that provides students an opportunity to explore HIV/AIDS, STIs, drugs and teen pregnancy in an engaging manner. BART allows teens to speak about personal situations in a safe, fun environment.
- Visionary Youth Becoming Empowered (VYBE), our afterschool program, is our flagship program that blends material from MPC/BART with life skills and fun, interactive discussions and field trips. VYBE programs are offered over a 9-week and full school year time period.
- WWH also offers the Parents Matter curriculum to parents and caregivers of children ages 9-12. Parents Matter is a six-hour, evidence-based program designed to enhance protective parenting practices and promote parent-child discussions about sexuality and sexual risk reduction.
