We believe that adolescent health care practices, programs, and policies should be developed with young people rather than just for them. For this reason, PATCH hires youth to create positive change by making their voices heard. They gain the appropriate knowledge and skills through rigorous training to deliver peer education and health care professional development workshops, and advocate for better adolescent programs and policies in schools, communities, and health care systems.

With an aim to improve the communication and overall relationship between adolescents and health care providers, the Providers and Teens Communicating for Health (PATCH) Program offers programming and resources for health care professionals, youth, health teachers, and parents and guardians.
