INNOVATE: DIY

Funded by the HHS Personal Responsibility Education Innovation Strategies Program (PREIS), the Digital Initiative for Youth (DIY) combines existing, in-person, group-based, comprehensive sexual health education with wraparound digital technologies. This enables reinforcement of key messages and skills as well as provides real-time information and referrals for local services and resources. In partnership with Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies at the University of California, San Francisco and Fresno Economic Opportunity Commission (EOC), the team will implement youth-centered health design methodology to develop curriculum and web-based wraparound technologies that focus on four main areas: sexual health and contraceptive use, healthy relationships, educational and career development, and life skills. DIY combines the in-person curriculum with wraparound technology that reinforces key messages and skills as well as provides real-time information and referrals for local services and resources.
