Self-Taught: The podcast

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 the conversations about puberty, relationships, sexual health, identity and much more that we wish were part of our upbringing. 

When you are in foster care, 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 these conversations to you. We hope these episodes 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 and supported through a grant to the National Center for Youth Law from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.

Please like and subscribe to our podcast to get future episodes.

Thank you to our Youth Advisory Board for the inspiration and content; John Freret for music; Mezclao Studio, cover art; Melissa Russom, podcast producing; and the National Center for Youth Law for sponsorship!
