Throughout the TASH program, teens will participate in a TASH retreat, attend monthly meetings, and participate in community events such as the Birmingham Pride Parade, Period Rally, World AIDS Day, and more. Participation in TASH can help teens fulfill any community service or internship hour requirements. If they do not need service or internship hours, students are also eligible to receive cash stipends.
The main objectives of this program are to reduce teen pregnancy and STI rates in the Birmingham community, destigmatize conversations regarding sexual health, empower the youth of Birmingham to make healthy and safe decisions, and increase linkages to STI/HIV testing and treatment, LGBTQ+ safe spaces, contraception counseling, and more. Through TASH, teens will learn more about sexual health topics in order to make healthy decisions that will help them achieve their goals, and be empowered to share their new knowledge with peers and other community members.
