Want help in your efforts to build support for programs and services? We can work with you to…
Develop campaigns, strategies, and materials to support public policy changes at the state or local levels on issues relevant to youth.
Build support and cultivate relationships with key stakeholders, developing positive community engagement.
Write winning grant proposals in support of your fund development efforts.
Share your successes and tell your story, using strategies such as data visualization.
Healthy Teen Network develops position statements on relevant issues for youth as a way to make clear to our varied audiences what we stand for and as a resource to support our and your program development and public policy advocacy efforts.
We encourage you to adopt and adapt these position statements to suit your needs!
Healthy Teen Network communicates our positions on public policy issues to Congress, the President, and executive branch officials through correspondence, testimonies, and statements for the record. Sometimes we communicate positions individually. Other times we communicate our positions with other organizations in the form of sign-on letters. We post copies, here on this page, of recent public policy communications, organized under the themes of health promotion, adolescent sexual and reproductive health, pregnant and parenting teen support, and other.
Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health
Pregnant and Parenting Teen Support
Other Policy Communications
Healthy Teen Network belongs to numerous public policy issue advocacy coalitions. By participating in these coalitions and task forces, we bring our perspective and add our voice to groups of organizations with public policy positions akin to ours. In so doing we amplify our individual work and aggregate our influence.
