YOUTH

Information about sex can be overwhelming, confusing, and conflicting.  MOASH provides adolescents with important, accurate, and age-appropriate resources for youth, including statistics and current news.

MOSH coordinates the MY Voice, or Michigan Youth (MY) Voice for Sexual Health, a youth advisory council comprised of young people representing the diversity of youth served by the various state programs focused on sexual health. MY Voice offers valuable input to statewide sexual health providers, ensuring programs and materials targeting youth are appropriate, culturally competent, and accessible.
