Over the last 30 years there has been a great deal of focus on sexual and reproductive health programming for young women. This program focuses on the responsibilities of young men in the sexual and reproductive health equation. Students chosen for this program will spend 8 sessions (1.5 hours each) exploring sexual health and sexuality related topics with a trained male sexual health educator.
