The Sex-Ed Loop is Chicago’s destination for reliable youth sex education and is a place for all Chicago youth to get comprehensive, medically-accurate, and up-to-date information on sexual health, rights, and identity. The Sex-Ed Loop offers weekly text messaging and a clinic finder app to connect adolescents to health care services throughout the city.
The Chicago Public Schools (CPS), Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health (ICAH) are working together to reduce rates of STI/HIV and AIDS, prevent teen pregnancy and increase access to health services for adolescents. The SexEdLoop website is just one element of this combined effort. The SexEdLoop provides teens and young adults reliable, up to date information on sexual health and other health topics through a variety of social media resources. You can subscribe to a weekly text messaging service and use the clinic finder that will connect you to health care services throughout the city. Visit us online at Facebook and Twitter!
