In an effort to increase primary prevention to prevent STD transmission and unintended pregnancies, a web-based Youth Social Marketing Toolkit (YSMT) was created. The toolkit provides an overview of how agencies with limited financial resources can develop a social marketing campaign that reaches out to youth and young adults. Please note this toolkit is under revision. Created in 2007 this toolkit lacks the benefit of a social media strategy and contains outdated resources and broken links.
