We believe when individuals have access to accurate information and access to contraception, they are better equipped to make decisions that are right for them.
A Step Ahead Chattanooga offers a variety of free educational workshops for social service providers, clinic partners, community partners, parents, guardians, grandparents, youth and adults.
Our workshops provide factual information about preventative birth control methods, healthy relationships, and overall reproductive wellbeing.
Our parent and guardian workshops provide developmentally appropriate education to have those tough conversations about sex, love, and relationships.
Our adult workshops provide factual information that will increase knowledge about preventative birth control methods and connect individuals to free preventative contraception.
Through comprehensive sex education, we aim to empower youth with the knowledge and ability to make healthy choices about their bodies, health, and relationships.
ASAC was awarded a grant from the State of Tennessee called The Plan Ahead Project in October 2020. This grant has allowed us to expand our education offerings throughout all of our Tennessee counties. We have made some amazing progress and look forward to continuing our work in these areas.
During the first year, our Health Educators connected with 7,465 individuals throughout our Tennessee service area through outreach and education opportunities, we established 182 new partnerships with a variety of organizations who also provide assistance and information throughout our service area and we saw 771 individuals connect to needed clinical services.
If you live within our Tennessee Service area and would like to connect to our Health Education team drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
