Education for healthy sexuality is a lifelong process for people of all ages. To promote that learning, Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan New Jersey’s (PPMNJ) Education Department provides a wide variety of sexuality education programs to all populations including youth, parents/guardians, educators, adults, and populations with physical and cognitive disabilities. Our interactive workshops, presentations, and training on sexuality education topics can be delivered in a variety of classroom and community settings.

PPMNJ’s approach to sex education is more than just lecturing about anatomy, birth control, and STI prevention. Sex is about things people can do. Sexuality is part of who you are. Comprehensive sexuality education is a medically accurate curriculum that provides positive messages around sex and sexuality as natural, normal, healthy parts of life.

In 2020, Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan New Jersey (PPMNJ) launched its Gender Affirming Hormone Therapy program in our Paterson Health Center for our patients, 18 and over. The demand for this service was immediate and has grown. We provide quality, compassionate care from an informed consent model for our transgender patients. We are committed to improving the way transgender people receive health care in our region. We proudly work together with our transgender community to lead the way in eliminating barriers to care. PPMNJ plans to expand its GAC program to our Newark-Mulberry Health Clinic in 2022.

In 2021-2022, PPMNJ will be working with its GenAction Network, our Health Center Advocacy Program (HCAP), and our Advocacy Volunteers.

GenAction advocates organize events on their campuses and in their communities to mobilize advocates for reproductive freedom; in addition to raising public awareness about reproductive health and rights, educating young people about sexual health, and creating lasting change in those communities.

With HCAP, volunteers are a driving force in PPMNJ’s effort to educate patients and health center visitors. HCAP volunteers connect with the full range of individuals who use our services and provide these supporters and patients with a range of ways to get involved in advocating for their reproductive health and rights.

Advocacy volunteers take part in community outreach and tabling, collect petitions, canvass, data entry and many other public affairs activities.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In 2019, PPMNJ adopted a new Strategic Plan to put into action for 2020 -2022. The goals for this 3-year strategic plan are as follows:

(2) Attract well-trained employees, and facilitate their growth within PPMNJ by providing consistent HR programs, practices, and policies.

(3) Identify and analyze our community's demographics and needs to offer appropriate services for people of all backgrounds and economic capacities, including people with private insurance.

(4) Be less dependent on government funding by diversifying our revenue stream and increasing our foundation and corporation grant funding.

(5) Provide accessible, nonjudgmental education programs for patients, students, and families, and the professionals that serve them throughout the entire PPMNJ region.

Goal 1 Strategies:
(a) Build a comprehensive marketing plan for the entire organization with clear, consistent messaging for each stakeholder group.

PPMNJ is the third oldest Planned Parenthood affiliate and the first affiliate in New Jersey. We have remained in this community despite many political, economic, and infrastructure challenges over our history. PMNJ remains committed to the communities we serve and the unique challenges they face, particularly in Newark. No one is turned away from family planning services because of an inability to pay. Additionally, we have been a critical source for sexuality education for the women, men, and families in our service area for 42 years. Over the years, PPMNJ has remained true to its core mission and vision by practicing compassion, confidentiality, and dependability.
