PODCAST! Self Taught: Former Foster Youth on Sex, Health, and Life. Welcome to Self-Taught, a podcast from foster youth, for foster youth, with unfiltered conversations about sex, health and life. These are conversations about puberty, relationships, sexual health, identity and much more that we wish were part of our upbringing. There aren’t always people to answer the big questions or to make it easy to open up about sensitive stuff. That’s why we’re bringing those conversations to you. Because you’re not alone. We hope these conversations spark questions and provide resources for you, to find answers, feel empowered, and have community.

Self-Taught is hosted by the youth advisory board of the Reproductive Health Equity Project at the National Center for Youth Law.
