Spring Initiative creates new opportunities for young people in the Mississippi Delta to overcome disparities and live happy, healthier lives.
Through grants from the Women’s Foundation, Spring Initiative provides regular, evidence-based sex education across all ages to ensure that students can make informed decisions about their health and feel confident in defining and maintaining the boundaries they choose to set for themselves.
These initiatives are paired with individual conversations where staff members offer emotional and logistical support to ensure that students feel motivated and equipped to access birth control, regular STD tests, medical care, etc.
