Healthy Teen Network is on the cutting edge of adolescent sexual health. The organization provides conferences, training, resources, and advocacy geared toward ensuring that all young people have access to information and resources they need to live healthy, successful lives. In my work with HTN (I have been a Board member since 2009 and a member since 2002), I have always found the Board and staff to be dedicated to providing excellent services to those who work with adolescents. The organization is run with integrity and responsibility, and is committed to using innovative and effective tools to fulfill its mission.

I have been invovled with Healthy Teen Network since 2002, when I attended my first conference. Their trainings and conferences are always excellent, and the resources they provide are useful and very relevant to the work I do. I was so impressed with the organization that I volunteered to become a member of their Board of Directors, which has been a very good experience for me!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own professional development, and by using the materials they create in my advocacy work, trainings, and as a resrouce for writing grants and reports on adolescent health.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand services so more people could take advantage of them.

Find a more effective way of promoting the purpose and burnishing the brand of the organization.
