The goal of VDH's Adolescent Health Program is to empower youth with the information, resources and access they need to make informed decisions about their health.
- Positive Youth Development Programs: Five partners serve almost 2,000 youth in Hampton Roads, Harrisonburg, Paige County, Roanoke, Smyth County, Bristol, and Wise County in Teen Outreach Program and Project AIM.
- BrdsNBz Sexual Health Text Line: Virginia adolescents can text "Talk2Me" to 66746 and get answers to their sexual health questions from a certified health educator.
- VDH Youth Advisors: The Adolescent Health Program will hire two Youth Advisors to serve as youth culture experts, and create and manage VDH's regional youth advisory structure; positions will be posted in early 2020.
- Comprehensive Sexual Education: The Adolescent Health Program will begin funding comprehensive sexual education in 2020.
