Sex Education at Home for Your Tweens?

Who should be conducting comprehensive sex education to tweens and where should it be happening?  This was the question that the Berkshire United Way’s Karen Cole, Coordinator of Youth Development, posed to the newly created reduce teen pregnancy Coalition.  The answer is simple, everyone should be involved from parents to the schools to peer programs.  Empowering young tweens to delay sex, access reproductive health and aspire for bright futures is essential in driving down the staggering teenage pregnancy rate in Berkshire County.  The births to teens between ages 15-19/1000 teens is 20.6 Berkshire County and 34.0 Pittsfield which is staggering compared to the rest of the state at 17.1.  Together we can change history and empower our youth to invest in their future through programs like GET REAL and LET’S BE HONEST.  To get more information on these programs and how you can reach your tweens go to www.berkshireunitedway.org.
