Power Through Choices: Equipping Youth to Succeed

Power Through Choices is an evidence-based sexuality education curriculum designed with and for adolescents ages 13-18 in systems of care and other out of-home care settings to help prevent pregnancy, HIV, and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

About the Curriculum

Through interactive knowledge and skill-building activities, Power Through Choices is tailored for the special needs, situations, and concerns of youth in systems of care. The curriculum addresses the specific characteristics which may motivate these youth to become pregnant or engage in sexual risk-taking behavior. Read more about the curriculum.


Our curriculum is one of the first and only research-based sexual education curricula designed specifically for youth in out-of-home care. Read more about our research.

“It taught me a lot like, like sex-wise and stuff. Taught me how to protect myself from harm and taught how you can do better with yourself and your protection.”

“Before...I don’t think that they knew how to talk about it. Nobody knew how to talk about it to them, and I think the kids are taking all those things away from here.”

“It exposed [youth] to lines of thought that they hadn’t had in the past. It got them to think more critically about what their options are with regards to behavior.”
