TFYHI Young Adult Consultants July 2021 Update

Over the past few months, the Young Adult Consultant Group has found new and inventive ways to contribute to TFYHI’s intervention development and communications strategies. The group put their creativity to work curating mood boards that visually represent the tone and themes they would like to see in TFYHI’s social marketing to youth in foster care. Group members also worked in pairs to write examples of successful and unsuccessful conversations about sexual health and relationships between youth in care and the adults in their lives. These conversation examples will be used in trainings and written materials for caregivers and professionals to illustrate the types of communication that feel authentic and supportive to youth. Lastly, group members informed the development of FAQs for young people in care about accessing sexual and reproductive health care. Stay tuned—these FAQs and many other resources will be coming to the TFYHI website soon!
