The purpose of Fact Forward’s Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is to provide a youth voice to Fact Forward program initiatives. The Youth Leadership Council will have an opportunity to share ideas, give opinions and lead initiatives in South Carolina/North Carolina to support adolescent reproductive health efforts. 

The base structure of the program is to attend meetings virtually. Participants will have the opportunity to reach out to Fact Forward staff and peers, as well as respond to questions about adolescent reproductive health education and services.


Participants will attend a two-day leadership retreat during the summer. The retreat will provide intensive training on topics to increase their capacity including public speaking, reproductive health, the science of teen pregnancy prevention and conflict management.
