The vision of Teen Straight Talk is to equip teens with truth, unaltered by the ever-changing morals of our society. The values they learn will provide them with an unchanging grid of truth through which all diverse information must flow as opposed to the "accepted truth" that has evolved from the moral decline of our society.
For the past 20 years Teen Straight Talk has been passionately educating children, teens, and adults regarding the importance of abstinence as a lifestyle choice. Much emphasis is placed on the consequences of participating in sexual activity outside the boundaries of marriage and the numerous benefits from abstaining from all sexual activities until entering the bond of marriage. Prime focus is also placed on personal worth, a belief system resting on absolute truth, exercising judgment based on evidence, clear decision making, understanding consequences and accountability for one's actions and choices.
The psychological and emotional needs of young girls who were sexually active or abused were witnessed first hand by a volunteer counselor at a residential program for unwed pregnant teens. These girls were being deceived by their male friends through words such as: "I love you"... and the destructive, dishonest theory of "safe sex." The need to expand the scope of abstinence education became necessary as a Volunteer, Mary Duke, quickly realized the consequences of high risk behavior were just as damaging to the boys as to the girls. The expanded program educated both young men and women in truth concerning their personal worth and value, and encouraged them to take responsibility for their lives.
