The Native Youth Sexual Health Network (NYSHN) is an organization by and for Indigenous youth that works across issues of sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice throughout the United States and Canada. The key areas they focus on include: culturally safe sex education; promoting traditional rites of passage, coming of age ceremonies, and traditional knowledge; healthy relationships and violence prevention; pregnancy education; environmental justice; harm reduction; two-spirited and LGBTQ advocacy and awareness; and sexually transmitted infection and HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention.

The Native Youth Sexual Health Network provides workshops, teach-ins, presentations, curriculum, and resource creation. For more information about the Native Youth Sexual Health Network please visit: www.nativeyouthsexualhealth.com and fill out their contact form for more information.
