TORCH is a youth-focused program designed to educate people about sexual and reproductive health and rights in New York City. Our peer-led facilitation approach allows us to connect with youth and health care providers in a comprehensive and realistic way. Our mission is to empower young people to make informed choices and lead healthier lives.
