Answer is a national organization that provides and promotes unfettered access to comprehensive sexuality education for young people and the adults who teach them.

We believe in young people. We are dedicated to ensuring young people have the knowledge and skills they need to be happy, healthy and safe well into the future. This means they should be able to access age-appropriate and medically-accurate information about sexuality directly, and without interference.

Answer knows that committed, caring adults play an integral role in supporting the health and well-being of young people. For over 40 years, we have helped adults be the best sexuality educators they can be by providing the latest resources, most current information and best practices for reaching and teaching the youth in their lives.
