Caregiver Training

The California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act, Senate Bill 89, passed in 2017, mandated that group home administrators and resource families, as part of the pre-approval process, receive sexual and reproductive wellness training that includes information on the rights of youth to education and care, the duties of the caregiver to support access, how to identify appropriate resources and referrals, and how to engage and talk with youth and young adults about healthy sexual development and reproductive and sexual health in a manner that is medically accurate, developmentally and age-appropriate, trauma-informed, and strengths-based. The trainings on this page support compliance support compliance with this mandate and/or address other frequently requested topics related to sexual and reproductive health.
