Teen Doula Training

At DTI, we believe all teens are marginalized in the reproductive health space.

About

Our Teen Doula Program is a 3 day training to support teens as they make choices for their reproductive health that are informed and evidence based. During this training we will provide: 

  • a container for young adults to freely share, learn, and explore
  • resources for teens to grow into reproductive advocates and  support those around them
  • a community of like-minded teens to support each other
  • an entrepreneurial spark for reproductive health
