Mission Statement

TORCH is a peer education program, dedicated to training youths in reproductive rights, and activism issues, so that they can then educate their peers.

Description

The TORCH program is looking for enthusiastic, earnest, and resposible youth to apply for our NARAL/NY Foundation TORCH Peer Leadership and Advocacy Program. The goal of our program is to train young adults, interested in reproductive rights and related topics, to give presentations to other youth and school groups throughout the city. Topics include sexuality, reproductive rights, abortion, legislation, community organizing, body image/ self esteem, and relationship violence. The training consists of eighteen, two-hour training sessions, from 4-6 pm, on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting the first week of December. The young adults selected for the program are required to commit through June, although there is a summer program as well. Youth in the 10th and 11th grade are especially encouraged to apply, however 9th and 12th graders are welcome as weel. Particpants will receive a $7 per hour stipend for their participation.
