The Youth Advocacy Movement, is a group of persons between the ages 10 and 24, who meet at the Barbados Family Planning Association on Fridays from 4pm until 6 pm. Specifically for our youth gatherings in a safe setting, to speak on issues in their lives.
Sex Talk! Your teen is likely curious about sex and contraception, whether or not you bring up the topic. By being open and honest, you can help your teen make informed decisions and act more responsibly when he or she decides to have sex — whether it's now or years in the future.
Speak to one of our nurses who will advise you on contraceptive methods and what to do if you think your teen is engaging in sexual activity.
Parents, take your role in sex education seriously. Encourage your child to take care of his or her body, develop a healthy sense of self-respect, and seek information from trusted sources. Your thoughtful approach to sex education can help your child develop a lifetime of healthy sexuality.
A peer is anyone of similar age who shares the same interests as you. These include school & college friends, people you play sports or hang out with, and people who go to the same church as you. Peer relationships can be good, and create long lasting bonds.
Having friends who understand you, and who you can confide and get support from, is important.
However, on the flip side is what is known as ‘peer pressure.’ You may feel pressured to do the same things your friends are doing, such as staying out late, having underage sex and drinking alcohol, in an attempt to fit-in or be accepted. This is where the BFPA Youth Division, (Youth Advocacy Movement) can help with our Peer Education Program. This program will help equip you with the ability to assert yourself with your peers, and feel confident saying NO when faced with things you are not comfortable in doing.
