keeping it safe and sexy (KISS)
KISS is a peer-to-peer sex education summer program for LGBTQ youth and allies to train as sexual health educators at Family Tree Clinic.
This is an awesome opportunity for teens to learn about sexual health issues, be trained as a peer educator, and develop leadership and communication skills.

Community Health Educator
Katie’s passion for healing justice has found a home in the Family Tree education department. She graduated from Pitzer College in 2014 with a designed major in Narrative Studies of the African Diaspora, in which she focused on systematic oppression and stories of liberation they incite. As a sex educator, she hopes to create spaces in which students feel comfortable reflecting on their own beliefs, histories, and relationships. Ultimately, her goal is to equip her students with the information, sex positivity, and alternative narratives about sex and sexuality they need to be healthy and empowered.
Sexual Violence Prevention Community Health Educator
Allegra is a graduate of Macalester College, where she developed her passion for holistic wellness, healing justice and sexual violence prevention. She brings her experience with intersectional education and working with young people to Family Tree Clinic, where she hopes to create space for young folks to deepen their understanding of themselves and others.
