Welcome! Join us in Poking the Bear; we are a group of presenters that talk to middle and high schoolers about ...well... a lot of stuff!

We fight to give young people the information they deserve to make the best choices possible when it comes the their sexuality, safety, and over all health. You deserve access to the truth about risks you face. So let's dig in together!
