Our Work

PATCH provides youth-driven materials, resources, and programming to raise the voices of youth and improve the overall health and well-being of their generation.

The Core PATCH Package provides communities the support, resources, and materials to become a PATCH Site. A PATCH Site has a PATCH Teen Educator team who facilitates the PATCH for Providers and PATCH for Teens: Peer-to-Peer workshops, and advocates for change in their community.

Additional brochures, posters, and resources are available in the PATCH Store. These are great for use in classrooms, clinic waiting areas, youth centers, and other community spaces.

PATCH for Teens: Classroom Edition provides school health teachers, health-related professionals, youth workers, and other adults the materials and resources needed to teach young people about their rights and responsibilities in health care settings. The Toolkit was developed to align with the National Health Education Standards.

The Classroom Edition is a great addition to any programming or existing health curricula.

PATCH for Parents is intended to help community organizations, schools, health care systems, and others actively engage and educate parents, guardians, and caregivers on teen rights and responsibilities in health care settings, and help them to support young people in becoming responsible managers of their own health.

PATCH provides young people with the knowledge, skills, and overall support to be drivers of change in their community.

Advocacy Fellowship

PATCH Staff is available to talk with organizations about the PATCH approach to positive youth development and youth/adult partnerships. We’d be delighted to host a training, be a guest speaker, or provide consultation services.
