 Temporary Community Engagement Coordinator



The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the health and well-being of all New Yorkers.  To this end, in partnership with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), FPHNYC incubates innovative public health initiatives implemented by DOHMH to advance community health throughout the city. It facilitates partnerships, often new and unconventional, between the government and the private sector to develop, test, and launch new initiatives. These collaborations speed the execution of demonstration projects, effect expansion of successful pilot programs, and support rapid implementation to meet the public health needs of individuals, families, and communities across New York City.



The NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene is committed to helping create a world where all New Yorkers can safely express their sexuality and gender identity with dignity, possessing the knowledge, skills, and resources to support healthy and fulfilling lives.

New York City Teens Connection (NYCTC) is an adolescent sexual health program of the Bureau of Maternal, Infant, and Reproductive Health (BMIRH) in the Division of Family and Child Health within the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH). NYCTC is an expansion of Bronx Teens Connection, scaling up this successful community-based model to reach more youth throughout NYC. By engaging youth, parents, community-based organizations, schools, clinics, and citywide agencies in a comprehensive effort to improve adolescent sexual health, NYCTC helps youth in NYC learn about their sexual and reproductive health, access the information and resources they need to make healthy decisions and feel empowered to act on these decisions.

NYCTC works through local and citywide partnerships to bring evidence-based sexual health education programs and access to teen-friendly clinical sexual and reproductive health services to youth. The model includes the following components: Sexual Health Education, Clinical Linkage, Community Engagement, Large-Scale Impact, and Evaluation. Through collaboration with community partners, citywide agencies, and other relevant stakeholders, New York City Teens Connection is building a sustainable model that will change the trajectory of adolescent sexual health citywide.
