We are pleased to present the 2022 Virtual Teen Conference. Planned Parenthood of Northern, Central, and Southern New Jersey has hosted Teen Conference for 20 years. Traditionally an in-person conference that has over 700 high school participants annually, our Virtual Teen Conference was developed in 2020 during the COVID-19 Pandemic in order to continue our tradition of providing high school students with information that promotes health, leadership, empowerment, and access to resources.
 
Our 2022 Virtual Teen Conference is an interactive, self-guided, virtual learning experience for high school students, advised by high school students, and featuring high school students. Please enjoy all the workshops, videos, and resource information we have to offer!  

For questions regarding the 2022 Virtual Teen Conference please email our team at education@ppgnnj.org.
