Annex Teen Clinic's Values
Sexuality is an intrinsic component of humanity and that every person experiences sexuality from birth to death. We celebrate that adolescent sexuality is a developmentally appropriate part of a life-long process. All people have the right to education about sexuality, sexual health care, and sexual expression appropriate to their age and stage of life. We know that parents are the primary sexuality educators for their children and work to provide trainings, resources, and encouragement to help parents succeed in this role.
We provide access to sexual health services and education at a low cost and believe in breaking down barriers to services and information. We value access to fact based information for people of all ages that is accurate, up-to-date, confidential, and relevant. Young people deserve access to confidential health care services and information. We work to provide access to all young people, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnic and racial background, or socio-economic status. We provide medically accurate information and place trust in young people to make informed decisions when they have access to accurate information. We advocate for public policies that support access to confidential health care services and information.
We are committed to excellence in every aspect of our work. We strive to provide high quality information, products, programs, outcomes, services, and relationships. We are committed to the continuing education and ongoing development of our employees and volunteers. Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience for young people both in our clinical services and community outreach educational programs.
Young people and adults can learn and gain skills from each other. This openness to learning from others helps inform healthy decisions. Because of our belief that young people need and deserve significant roles in the community, we partner with young people to enhance our services and create opportunities for youth to contribute in meaningful ways. We value authentic partnerships with a variety of organizations and communities and understand that our collaboration can lead to healthier communities. We challenge ourselves to provide culturally and linguistically relevant services to the diverse populations we serve and welcome partnerships to improve our cultural understanding and awareness.
Youth are central to our work! We value and strive to integrate all young people’s perspectives into our programs and policies. Adolescence is a unique time in life, and has its own assets and challenges. Our ability to relate to teens is crucial to the success of the organization. We are committed to being confidential and nonjudgmental and forming meaningful relationships based on mutual respect.
The values of the Annex Teen Clinic were developed through an extensive process of discussion, revision, and collaboration with Annex staff, volunteers, board members and youth council members. These values guide our decision-making processes and the delivery of our services. Through the application of our values, we will develop and maintain healthy relationships with youth and their families, our organizational partners, co-workers, and the community as a whole.

Over the past year, we’ve been thinking strategically about where we want the Annex Teen Clinic to be in five years. I’ve always enjoyed strategic planning since it gives us an opportunity to think beyond the confines of our day to day programming and administrative responsibilities. As board and staff reviewed our current operations and the multitude of changes that have occurred in youth work and health care, some clear themes started appearing.
One of the primary themes of our discussions was the commitment to excellence in every facet of our operations. In an era of limited resources, this requires some tough decisions about focus. Another theme is the need to work within a youth development framework, which challenges us to recognize the multitude of things happening in the lives of young people that affect their sexual health. How do we build on our role as a critical access point for young people, specialize in sexual health, and yet assure we are “seeing” that whole young person in front of us? I’m excited that our new strategic plan will provide a sound framework for our work over the next five years. Stay tuned for information about that!
Perhaps the most exciting part of our planning discussions is taking us back to our roots. The Annex Teen Clinic was started 43 years ago when a group of young people approached community leaders about the need for confidential, accessible sexual health services. The process that ensued contained elements of authentic youth adult partnerships. Adult community leaders genuinely listened to young people and respected their voice about what was needed to make this community a healthy place for teens and young adults. The Annex is committed to reestablishing the principles of authentic youth adult partnerships as central to our work over the next five years.
