Rights. Respect. Responsibility.® These core values underpin Advocates' vision of a society where adolescents are valued, public health policy is driven by scientific research, and sexuality is viewed as a normal and healthy part of being human, of being a teen, of being alive. In such a society, parents will play an essential role in helping young people to make healthy, responsible choices. Communication and partnership within the family will be the norm. Communities will fulfill their responsibilities, providing young people with a secure stake in the future and the information and services youth need to protect their health and save their lives. Adults will respect and support youth's right to act responsibly. Learn more about the 3Rs
