April, 2016

It is with great sadness that Teenwise Minnesota closed its doors on November 30, 2015. For almost 25 years Teenwise Minnesota had been the source for information and training on adolescent sexual health in Minnesota. During that time, and with your help, Minnesota has seen a record breaking drop in unintended teen pregnancy, increased support for teen parents, and the delivery of high quality youth-centered sexual health education and services.

To continue this important work on behalf of young people in our state, several public and private entities stepped up to sustain some of Teenwise’s key resources for the field.
