About the Event

Join Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs for a roundtable discussion on tools to better understand and meet the needs of youth and improve family planning outcomes. Through hands-on facilitation, participants will learn about resources from CCP's Breakthrough ACTION project to help provide comprehensive sexual education in a digital space, cultivate empathetic relationships between providers and young clients, and conduct meaningful dialogue with youth to address their reproductive health wants and needs. Breakthrough ACTION is a partnership led by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs in collaboration with Save the Children, ThinkPlace, ideas42, Camber Collective, International Center for Research on Women, and Viamo.

The 1 hour and 15-minute roundtable will be offered in English with simultaneous interpretation into French.
