#TalkingIsPower: 2018 Champion Guide

Champions (trusted adults) play an important role in helping to ensure that all young people have the power to decide if, when and under what circumstances to become pregnant.

That can cause a lot of pressure, but it doesn’t have to be. Check out our six tips to help guide you through a thoughtful, rational, and (hopefully) slightly less awkward conversation about sex with the young people in your life.
