Announcing Scarleteen’s New Provider Database- Add Your Organization Now!
If you’re a regular reader here, you’ve probably seen some posts about Scarleteen.com. That’s because it’s an amazing organization and it’s one of a very few sexuality resources for young people that offers accurate and direct information without judging or shaming them.
They’ve just launched a new database project and it’s going to be amazing. Here it is, in their own words:
Since the database is new, they need some help getting listings. If you know or work for an organization that offers sexual health services to young people, please go here to add it to the list. It’s an international database, so it doesn’t matter what country you’re in. What kinds of services qualify? Here’s a list:
- basic sexual/reproductive healthcare
- STI/STD testing and treatment
- contraception (birth control)
- emergency contraception
- pregnancy testing
- pregnancy options counseling (pro-choice only)
- abortion services
- pre-natal care/obstetrics
- midwife/doula services
- counseling or therapy
- support groups
- addiction/recovery services
- trans gender/gender-variant services
- LGBQ services (lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer or questioning)
- teen-specific services
- rape/abuse crisis services
- services for teen or young parents
- shelter/crisis housing
- alternative medicine (such as naturopathy, acupuncture or massage therapy)
- referrals to other services
So head on over and help get the word out!

Also, omfg hurray Scarleteen!
Thanks, Ari. I fixed the setting.
Scarleteen looks like a great resource, but I’m not sure it’s appropriate for my teenaged brother who has short attention span—too many words, you see.
Can you recommend any simple, sex-positive and direct sex education resources online for the curious, willing and attention-span-challenged?
Since I don’t do as much work with teens, I’m not as familiar with what’s out there or what might work for your brother. But this UK-based organization has some interesting flyers ans such, although I don’t know if they sell them to individuals or just to schools. http://bishtraining.com The Coalition for Positive Sexuality or Go Ask Alice might have something. And you could contact Scarleteen and ask if they have other suggestions.
