Planned Parenthood's Boys2Men program partners with St. Louis City youth-serving organizations like Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club, and various social services organizations as well as area churches and schools, to hold "Boys2Men" classes. This multi-week course covers a range of topics, including the changes that affect young men’s bodies during puberty, levels of intimacy in relationships, communications skills, healthy decision making and medically accurate sex education. As an added incentive, the participants are paid to attend the classes, earning $5.15 an hour for the duration of the 36-hour course.
