On April 2nd LEGACY, Inc. assisted the Children's National Medical Center with conducting a Focus On Youth with ImPACT retreat.  Focus on Youth w/ ImPACT is a sexually transmitted infection (STI), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV),  and pregnancy prevention program for youth ages 12-15 years old. It aims to give youth the skills and knowledge they need to make healthy decisions surrounding life skills, goal setting and sexual health. By incorporating small group activities, skill-building exercises and independent work, this HIV risk reduction program serves as an important intervention to support youth with their positive health and wellness decisions.  18 youth attended the retreat.
