Supporting the Academic Success of Pregnant & Parenting Students Under Title IX
Transcript of Supporting the Academic Success of Pregnant & Parenting Students Under Title IX
We envision a world in which all young adults in Illinois use their power to achieve health and well-being in their own lives and for their communities.
ICAH is a network of empowered youth and allied adults who transform public consciousness and increase the capacity of family, school, and healthcare systems to support the sexual health, rights, and identities of youth.
Founded in 1977 as the Illinois Caucus on Teenage Pregnancy
In the early 90s, changed our name to be more inclusive.
In 2007 we became a Reproductive Justice organization
to create a space where everyone has what they need to create the kind of family that they want.

HOLDING SYSTEMS ACCOUNTABLE
ICAH’s School Network organizes allied school personnel with youth leaders to change policies, programs, & procedures that restrict the sexual health, rights, and identities of youth at school. The School Network currently advocates for Title IX compliance to ensure the academic success of all youth, regardless of sex, gender identity or parenting status.
