Project ReMIX: Young Moms Share Stories of Family, Relationships, and Health
In January, we had the chance to revive our collaboration with EngenderHealth by supporting peer educators with their U.S.-based Re:MIX Sexual Health Education Program in creating digital stories. Re:MIX trains young parents to conduct high school and community-based education sessions that teach adolescents to maximize their strengths, explore their identities, and imagine a healthy future for themselves. We led a group of amazing Re:MIX peer educators through a three-day digital storytelling workshop, offered as part of their ongoing professional development training and as a chance to support them in representing themselves in their own words, in their own way. The participating peer educators and other EngenderHealth staff will be sharing the digital stories in the coming months, via community-based public screenings, classroom presentations in concert with the Re:MIX curriculum, and online. View the Re:MIX stories now.
