TORCH is a paid peer education program that centers Black and Brown NYC youth. Our workshops combine sexual and reproductive health/rights/justice education and leadership training. Operating from a queer, feminist lens the program incorporates youth driven community action initiatives and fosters strong community partnerships to:
- Provide knowledge and empowerment opportunities for young people to make informed choices;
- Support the next generation of the sexual reproductive justice movement by fostering awareness and activism.
- Offer accessible comprehensive sexuality education that is medically accurate and inclusive of various identities and experiences.
