The Gente Joven Center in San Juan Rio Mexico. The Gente Joven "young people's" program is Mexfam’s unique attempt to address sexual health service and information needs of young people in Mexico. Using adolescent "peer" health promoters, it is a national program that targets youth ages 10 to 25 from urban and rural marginalized areas across the country. In addition to doing formal presentations in schools and recreation centers, peer promoters do active outreach engaging young people in the streets, schools, sports and recreation centers, workplaces and other places where young people usually gather.
Through this program, Mexfam hopes to meet Mexican youths' sexual and reproductive education needs while shaping a new youth sexual health culture that considers sexual education and information for adolescents and young people, as well as the corresponding comprehensive youth friendly services, a social obligation.
