Fostering Media Connections Presents Web Series About Sexual Education for Foster Youth

Fostering Media Connections (FMC) presents a new web series: “Let’s Talk About Sex, With Foster Youth.”

Biological parents are usually responsible for having “the talk” but in the lives of foster youth, no one is responsible for teaching teens about safe sex practices and healthy relationships. Young women in foster care are 2.5 times more likely than those not in foster care to have been pregnant by the age of 19, and youth in foster care are at an increased risk for sexually transmitted infections.

Each episode in this series includes interviews with foster youth, the adults in their lives, and experts on a range of topics covering sexual health, family planning, and the psychological issues associated with sexuality. The series has invaluable information for anyone whose role it is to talk with youth about sex and related issues. See the videos and find more resources on FMC’s website.

FMC has launched a “Summer Sex Talk Series” challenge to have at least 30 organizations or individuals host screenings of “Let’s Talk About Sex, With Foster Youth.” Learn more and sign up.
