Ford Foundation, Vodafone Americas Foundation, YTH, and ACLU- Northern California

YTH is the partner of choice for those in search of new ways to advance the health of youth and young adults through technology.

We believe that young people deserve honest information, deserve for their voice to be heard, and deserve to live healthy lives without shame or fear. YTH is committed to pursuing emerging, startling, and sometimes, simple technologies that can reach young people where they are. Through our partnerships and projects, we discover what works, pilot innovative solutions, and disseminate what’s truly effective.

YTH doesn’t just build things—though we do that exceptionally well, and have since 2001. We drive change by creating, evaluating, and refining technology solutions and providing partners with proven models ready for scale and replication. We also build the capacity of the community to advance youth health by providing research, training, idea generation, and expert advice.

Once we’ve determined what works, YTH makes sure that the community can learn from our findings by sharing them through our annual YTH Live conference, blog, and research.
