Adolescence is a time when young people develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to become sexually healthy. As they grow and mature, young people need access to accurate information about their sexuality. And, parents, educators, and policymakers need information about young people’s knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors in order to support them and provide high quality educational opportunities. For this reason, SIECUS provides information for and about adolescent sexuality.
