the science of how young people thrive

Every young person has a right to bodily autonomy and sexual health and well-being. To realize these rights, young people need access to sexual and reproductive health programs and services that are safe, honest, inclusive, affirming, healing-centered, and trauma-informed. 

We see you—the teachers and educators, the counselors and clinicians, the caring adults—working hard every day to make this happen. We know you do your best when you have easy access to the latest research, along with practical, helpful opportunities and resources. 

That’s why Healthy Teen Network and Johns Hopkins Center for Adolescent Health have partnered to create Thrivology. 

Thrivology brings you the latest research on how to provide the very best sexual and reproductive health education and care, so young people may thrive.

Resources Coming Soon!

We create resources you can use in the real world, so youth may thrive.
