Mission Statement

The Navajo County's Teen Health Program works with teens aged 11-19 in Navajo County to provide them with medically accurate information regarding their whole health including their mental, emotional, social, spiritual, and physical health.

Our mission is to empower youth in our community and to give them the tools they need so that they can make well informed decisions about their health while being aware of potential risks.

 

We offer free programs and curriculums that are evidence-based and rooted in a positive youth development framework.

 

Program Goals

  • Reduce the rate of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases within our community
  • Increase youth access to evidence-based programs to prevent teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
  • Increase linkages between teen pregnancy prevention programs and community-based clinical services.
  • To promote self-efficacy, communication/consent, healthy relationships, stress management skills, and drug and alcohol awareness.
  • Provide parents and caregivers with resources and tools to support their teen and communicate with them more effectively about their health.
