Working with Diverse Communities Update


Summer Greetings from JSI!


In light of recent questions we have received from grantees on working with LGBTQ youth and youth with developmental disabilities, we wanted to share with you this excellent resource from Oregon Health Authority and Pathways to Positive Futures. It includes research briefs on sexual health disparities experienced by seven subpopulations of disenfranchised youth, including youth in corrections, youth with developmental disabilities, youth in foster care, homeless youth, LGBTQ youth, youth with mental health conditions and youth who have experienced sexual abuse.
If you are interested in technical assistance related to engaging disenfranchised youth in teen pregnancy prevention programs, please contact JSI.
For more tools and resources on working with  
diverse communities, visit our website.
