The Youth Access Program of NewYork-Presbyterian's Projects STAY program provides adolescents and young adults with age-specific support from healthcare professionals such as medical providers, social workers, and trained health educators. Team members offer outreach, education, and counseling in community settings on various health topics, including sexual and reproductive health.
Our staff provides on-site testing at schools and community agencies for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and HIV. We also link our clients with care at youth-friendly clinics in New York City, such as two clinics in northern Manhattan operated by Project STAY. Young people can also receive an app that helps them locate clinics in their area. This app is available from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
