“I like that I learn the truth and get to help other students out because a lot of my friends, if I talk to them, they don’t know fact from fiction. I question myself, too. “Is this myth true?” I want my friends to know the truth instead.”

- Youth Outreach Worker, Raoul Wallenberg High School, San Francisco Unified School District

“I like being educated about comprehensive sexual health education because I know I am making healthy decisions. I become less distracted from school because instead of worrying about my sexual health and playing guessing games, I can focus back on my education.”
