Supera Youth


Supera Youth informs young people about sexual health issues in order to prevent unwanted pregnancies

in teenagers. This program also informs about Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and gender violence.

Our objective is to improve life quality for the most vulnerable populations in Nuevo León, México.


This organization provides educational tools for improving life conditions for teenagers in sexual health, reproductive health and personal improvement issues. This is accomplished through education programs for teenagers, informing about the importance of safe sexual practices as a preventive measure for unwanted pregnancies and STDs. These teenagers get involved in cultural workshops in which they promote sexual health in their communities. It also offers reflection spaces for all the young people in order to prevent all types of violence, specially gender violence.

Young People

In 1985, Supera created the Young Adults Program with the support of international organisms, such as the United States Agency for International Development (UDAID), the International Planning (IP) and The Population Council (PC) with the aim of causing great impact in society.


In 1997, Supera made an alliance with The Mexican Foundation for Family Planning (MEXFAM) and in 1998 the Young Adults Program changed its name to Young People. The alliance was made thanks to the sponsorship received by Packard Foundation for four years in order to work in specific municipalities in Nuevo León, México and the support from the William H. Gates Foundation, which made the Coahuila chapter possible.


In 2014 and 2015, the Young People's Program received support from the SEDESOL's Habitat program for workshops to promote sexual health in teenagers, through artistic, cultural and sport activities.

The Young People's Program is divided in three:

Educational

The objective is to inform teenagers about sexual health. Specialized experts give workshops dedicated to sexual education, family communication, psychological and social changes in adolescence, as well as hygiene courses and gender violence prevention.

Medical

It attends teenagers individually. The equipment in the Supera's medical clinics is used to provide specialized medical attention.

Communitary

It is done by the youth for the youth through informative and recreational activities.
