Protecting The East (United Community Centers)

Protecting the East is a youth led organization that educates the community about safer sex, HIV, STI, and Mpox prevention, and building healthy relationships. We provide free pregnancy tests, free Plan Bs, condoms, hygiene kits, and resources for the community. PTE hosts a lot of community events where people are able to receive free materials and resources. We also offer a 7 month internship for youth ages 14-20, who are interested in promoting the importance of sexual health and healthy relationships.
