Project SHINE/Sinergia Collaboration

Project SHINE partners are excited to share with you the launch of the Your Sexual Health Toolkit! (también disponible en Español) This online resource was created with and for youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 
Our Toolkit is full of important information about sexuality topics to help young people make informed decisions about sexual and reproductive health. 

Every page seeks to center youth with disabilities. Featuring an illustrated glossary, video testimonials from self-advocates, a resource hub, and our inclusive and engaging online sexual health game, Our Stories, Our Journeys, the Toolkit’s content provides many opportunities for fun and education. 

Sexuality and sexual health are part of human growth and development. Young people deserve to have the information they want and need about sexuality and sexual health. We hope you can use and share these tools to help the young people you know! 
Any questions or feedback? Contact us at to let us know how the toolkit and online game works for you and the young people in your lives.
