Let's Talk Month
Every October, the SC Campaign participates in Let’s Talk Month, a public awareness campaign led by Advocates for Youth that encourages open communication between young people and their parents or other trusted adults. Believe it or not, teens want to hear from their parents regarding love, sex, and relationships. Starting age-appropriate conversations early and continuing them into early adulthood will help young people make smarter decisions regarding their sexual health. To learn more about Let's Talk Month, visit www.advocatesforyouth.org/lets-talk-month.
Join the conversation for Let's Talk Month. Challenge yourself and other askable adults to start important conversations about love, sex and relationships with the child in your life.
