PATCH TEEN EDUCATOR PROGRAM
The PATCH Teen Educator Program looks to improve the way adolescents receive, experience, and utilize health care. It complements existing adolescent health care quality initiatives by providing teen-centered education, awareness, and encouragement to youth and health care professionals, alike.
Teen Educators are hired and trained to facilitate the PATCH for Providers and PATCH for Teens: Peer-to-Peer Workshops throughout their communities.
PATCH for Providers Workshop
This 90-minute workshop helps health professionals understand the health care concerns, preferences, and realities of today’s youth, offering better ways to connect with adolescent patients and ensure high-quality, youth-friendly services.
PATCH for Teens: Peer-to-Peer Workshop
This 60-minute workshop empowers young people to learn to manage their own health care and equips them with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate and advocate for youth-friendly services.
