Youth Leadership Council

IMG_1923Oklahoma ranks 2nd highest in the nation for teen births. Unplanned pregnancy can prevent some teens from reaching their full potential. Through the Youth Leadership Council (YLC), Tulsa Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy develops youth leaders in the areas of sexual/reproductive health and teen pregnancy prevention.

Tulsa Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy equips youth leaders with advocacy and public speaking training. The YLC advises the organization’s work and contributes valuable youth perspectives. YLC engages the community through public awareness and event planning targeted to empowering Tulsa’s youth.
