Brothers Rising Curricula: Boys Component of Promoting Adolescent Sexual Health and Safety (PASS)

Abstract

The Sisters Rising and Brothers Rising curricula are part of the Promoting Adolescent Sexual Health and Safety (PASS) program, a community-based program that educates and trains youth and adults in sexual health and safety. The goal of PASS is to provide a safe, culturally appropriate environment for adolescents and their caretakers to learn about sexual health, access health services, and challenge norms and behaviors around sex and relationships. The curriculum is written for adolescent black girls and boys (respectively) and uses a positive youth development lens, covering issues related to relationships and healthy sexuality centered around racial pride. The program is built to be implemented in a community setting rather than a school and is facilitated by trained adults from the community where the participants live.
