Care. No matter what:
PPLM has been a leader in promoting sexual health for more than 90 years.  We believe that all people deserve the information and expert services to make informed, personal decisions that affect their health, their lives and their futures.  We are the state’s leading provider of sexual and reproductive health services. We educate families and empower youth to make responsible choices that lead to healthier lives.  We advocate for policies that improve sexual health.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion:
PPLM believes sexual health is essential to every person’s overall health, well-being and happiness. We recognize that geographical and systemic barriers entrenched in discrimination and stigma prevent people in Massachusetts from having equitable opportunity to choose their own path and access to sexual and reproductive health care. In order to address health equity in communities across Massachusetts in an authentic way, we must start with ourselves. We are taking focused steps to make progress in our own organization. We have embarked on a diversity, equity and inclusion journey that will lead us toward becoming an organization that better reflects our patients and embodies cultural humility. We are wholeheartedly committed to this work.

The Bilingual Professional Trainer (BPT) is a national trainer and representative of PPLM’s Get Real and Professional Training Institute (“the Institute”). The Institute highlights training and support of sex educators and trainers implementing the nationally renowned, PPLM-authored, evidence-based curricula, Get Real: Comprehensive Sex Education That Works. The Institute also highlights our most popular training, Sexuality Education Cornerstone Seminar (SECS). As a master trainer, the BPT is responsible for solo and co-facilitation of a vast array of professional education opportunities such as webinars, online courses, and half-day, full-day, and multi-day in-person and virtual training opportunities for sex educators nationwide. The BPT will inform and contribute to further expansion of the Institute through curriculum maintenance and development, as well as the development and facilitation of new opportunities on a variety of sexual and reproductive health topics.
