Why was the Y Love Notes program created?

Why was the Y Love Notes program created?

The YMCA of Greater Louisville has received a grant from the DHHS Office of Population Affairs to do Teen Pregnancy Prevention. This is a fantastic opportunity to deliver a curriculum (Love Notes), which has been in this community for several years and validated as evidence based by University of Louisville. Though we cover all of the bases, this is not your typical sex ed. Rather, this fun and engaging program helps youth build better relationships and is a natural extension of our YMCA commitment to Youth Development, Healthy Living, Social Responsibility, and Character Development.
