CYP’s programs can be implemented in four ways:
1. As a program to fulfill the requirements of California Healthy Youth Act (CHYA).
CYP can tailor our programs to support schools to meet state requirements. CYP uses medically accurate, evidence-based programs that are being used nationwide. They have gone through a rigorous evaluation that demonstrated effectiveness in delaying teen sex and avoiding sexual risks. These programs were developed in different states. CYP can work with school administrators to supplement them to include topics such as: gender, gender identity, gender expression, legal rights of a minor to access family planning services without parental consent, and emergency contraception.
2. As a parallel program to an existing Comprehensive Sex Ed program to address the need for primary prevention education.
3. As an alternative program for parents, schools and students who are opting out of existing Comprehensive Sex Education.
CHYA Article 4. Notice and Parental Excuse [51937-51939]
(c) While comprehensive sexual health education, HIV prevention education, or anonymous, voluntary, and confidential test, questionnaire, or survey on pupil health behaviors and risks is being administered, an alternative educational activity shall be made available to pupils whose parents or guardians have requested that they not receive the instruction or participate in the test, questionnaire, or survey.
4. As a private course for students as well as for parents.
