Sex ed is everyone’s right.
That’s why we created Girl2Girl,
a sex ed program just for teen girls who are into girls.
Frequently Asked Questions
There has been a lot of compelling research showing how effective text messages can be at improving healthy behaviors but one or two texts don’t do the trick – more are needed to fully discuss important issues.
That’s why we send about 6-10 messages a day for about 8 weeks. This may seem like a lot – but for the average teen girl who sends and receives about 40 messages per day – navigating day-to-day life while receiving many message per day is not uncommon. Ultimately, we want to make sure our program has a significant impact on young people’s health.
As long as you have an unlimited text messaging plan, your time in the program costs absolutely nothing!
This is one of the great things about this program – you can choose when to receive messages so that they don’t interfere with your daily schedule.
We take the needs of our participants very seriously. This program isn’t intended to assist in an emergency. If you are in crisis, please 911 or a crisis hot line right away.
We understand that some girls are dealing with stress, trauma, mental illness, violence, and other difficult issues. Our team is prepared to provide resources and referrals if you need them.
You can always text “snooze” to the program and the messages will stop for the time period you request.
You can quit the program at any time for any reason. Simply text STOP to the G2G Phone Number.
This program aims to prevent teen pregnancy. It is critical that we talk about sex. Healthy relationships and strong communication skills are things we talk about in the program as well.
We’ve tailored this program to focus on sexual health issues that teen girls, who are into girls, face. As you’re probably aware, young men and young women have many different concerns and behaviors regarding their health, so it makes sense to tailor programs for them separately. The same is true for gender diverse youth compared to cisgender youth – the current program was written for cisgender youth but we hope to develop an inclusive version for gender diverse teens soon.
