The NOT RIGHT NOW campaign urges teens to think about the consequences BEFORE they have sex, make a plan for sexual health, and speak up for themselves.
We offer free, helpful resources like a birth control finder and a health center locator. We also have tips and advice for teens about how to have safer sex, how to tell your partner you’re not ready for sex, and how to have a constructive dialogue with your parents.
By giving teens frank information about preventing pregnancy and giving parents the tools to talk to their teen about sex, NOT RIGHT NOW is demystifying teen sexuality. We are empowering teens to take control of their sexual health today, so that they can have brighter, better future tomorrow.
The project began as a county-wide outreach program in Horry and Spartanburg counties; our message was so well-received that we have since expanded it into a statewide campaign.
