Our Mission

Improve the environment for and access to sexual and reproductive health education, counseling, and clinical services for South Carolinians ages 30 and younger.

Our Values

Integrity

We will be honest, credible, and trustworthy; open and accountable to the public; take responsibility for our actions; and hold ourselves to the highest standards in all endeavors and expect the same of all partners and stakeholders.

Innovation

We will be a bold organization that inspires and facilitates creativity, experiments, welcomes risks, and values and learns from missteps, all to decrease the number of unintended pregnancies among people under 30 and to limit the spread of HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases.

Outcome Focused

Because there is an urgent need to decrease the number of unintended pregnancies among people under 30 and to limit the spread of HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases, we will be an activist-organization, aggressive in the pursuit of our mission.

Rigor

We will value highly focused strategic planning, thorough research, disciplined implementation, independent outcome evaluation, and ongoing assessment of processes; lessons learned and outcomes will be shared in order to help others achieve our mission.

Collaboration

We will collaborate to engage individuals and organizations at the local, state, and national level, encouraging leadership and substantive dialogues, and growing capacity within constituent communities in the interest of sustainable change.

Endurance

We seek to address problems that are historically, socio-economically, and politically complex; therefore, endurance will be required as much as commitment, resolve, perseverance and optimism.
