The Institute of Women and Ethnic Studies currently provides sex education directly to young people in charters and traditional schools in Louisiana. As part of WISE, it is working to build the capacity of these schools to deliver sexuality education themselves.
Teen Health Mississippi (THMS) works with the Mississippi State Department of Health to implement evidence-based, abstinence-plus education in public schools through the Creating Healthy and Responsible Teens (CHART) Initiative. THMS also works to build the capacity of school districts to implement sex education and support schools in developing a K-5 human growth and development program.
SHIFT NC is currently a WISE Legacy Site. It focused on institutionalizing sex education in North Carolina public schools by helping schools with capacity assessment, policy review, cultural supports, training, and implementation-focused technical assistance.
