  • According to the CDC, 1 in 4 teens contract an STD/STI every year and each of these infections is a potential threat to their immediate and long-term health, and well-being; and
  • While the teen pregnancy rate in the U.S. is at its lowest at 52%, teen pregnancy, abortion, and birth rates for teens age 15 to 19 remain among the highest in the industrialized world; and 3 in 10 girls will be pregnant at least once before their 20th birthday with 1 in 5 teen moms having a second child during her teen years.

In 2012, after recognizing the critical need for young people to have a space to discuss and talk about sex, their experiences and the growing epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases/ infections, and teen pregnacy; I was inspired to create The Hive Community Circle. Teens and Young Adults need a safe nonstigmatized community that will help them value and recognize their true worth, provide education, support, and a platform to voice their concerns. The Hive Community Circle has been established to provide support in every stage of one's life/experinces through prevention, intervention, and educational awaress on sexual health, sexually transmitted diseases, teen pregnancy, and at-risk lifestyles for young people age 13-24.

Research shows that well-designed and well-implemented HIV/STD prevention programs such as the The Hive CC can decrease sexual risk behaviors among youth, including delaying first sexual intercourse, reducing the number of sex partners, decreasing the number of times students have unprotected sex, and increasing condom use. We know that it takes a viilage to raise a child, and as the late Dr. Maya Angelo said, " Because of them we Can." Together we can make a difference in the life of a young person by your financial contribution of $25.00 or greater helping us reach our goal of $5,000.00 by Septemeber 1st. If you are unable to give the requested amount know that no amount is too small, to be a blessing to the lives of young people awaiting these services and support.

Your contribution will enable The Hive CC to submit our 501 C-3 Application, launch the very first professional counseling teen and young adult STD online support group, and implement partnerships to attain curriculum and resources for our in-person STD support groups and Worth the Wait Boot Camp sessions. 

To join us in this amazing movement and make a difference in the life of a young person today, click on the link below. While we are currently working on obtaining our 501 C-3 status please know that your contribution is greatly appreciated and  you will be recognized on our website for being one of our very first contributors!

Sincerely,

The Hive Community Circle B.O.D.
