Scarleteen (Sex Education for the Real World) website was honored with Marty Klein’s 13th Annual Sexual Intelligence Award.
“The Scarleteen website has too many colors, too many fonts, bad puns, and references to social media I’ve never heard of. So it’s perfect for its audience–teens and early ’20s who want sexual information.
Since 2006 Scarleteen’s site has received a billion hits. What do visitors get?
* Hundreds of articles, factsheets, and Q/A on sexual health and relationships. The content is written by adults and teens/young people.
* Interactive message boards, a text/SMS service, and an active presence on Facebook and Twitter–written by staff, volunteers, and young adult users.
* Referrals to other services such as STI testing, contraception, pre-natal and abortion care, and crisis care.
Since Corinna founded it in 1998, Scarleteen has provided young people with accurate information along with social justice activism and a fierce commitment to a diversity-oriented, non-pathology model of sexuality. The U.S. has 1.5 million home-schooled students and 6 million high school-age youth no longer in school. Scarleteen is a crucial part of their sex education.
We are proud to join organizations such as UNICEF, Planned Parenthood, and The Boston Women’s Health Collective in recognizing Scarleteen and Heather Corinna for raising the Sexual Intelligence of the world’s young people.” Read more: http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?llr=bb7pmmjab&v=001QGVxMVttOOavwa7VHrx1ABpy1qO8S6GSZYQz2IoqkcQRfXsySHUOYMxKfX4sOGJ34tVQ5L87gAbNcLXWq1f5WRlj6AhNSfltuvsqy0I-Kws%3D
