The BrdsNBz Texting Line is staffed by sexual health educators from SHIFT NC. Each of our educators has been trained on how to respond to questions from young people.
Our team of health educators has over 60 years of experience working in adolescent sexual health. They have worked directly in the field and understand the needs of teens. These sexual health educators also appreciate that adolescents will ask their team of ‘trusted adults’ questions using BrdsNBz that they normally would not ask in-person. Health educators on the BrdsNBz Team have been trained in evidence-based curricula including: Smart Girls, Be Proud, Be Responsible, Making Proud Choices, Get Real, ¡Cuídate!, the Children’s AIDS Society Carrera program and others.
