This website was founded by Missouri’s Teen Pregnancy and Prevention Partnership, alongside youth service providers Better Family Life and Mathews-Dickey Boys and Girls Club, as part of the Federal Teenage Pregnancy Prevention program. Additional funding for this project was provided by the Missouri Foundation for Health.
These partners worked with GoodMap, a local nonprofit consultant and web developer, to put together teenhealthstl.org. During the design process, dozens of teens gave direction and feedback about what this site should do.

Youth Friendly Healthcare Services
Our goal for this site was to organize and display services that attract young people, respond to their needs, and retain young clients for continuing care.
We want to provide young people with services they trust and which they feel are designed for them. Providers and services designated as youth-friendly in this guide have been formally reviewed on the 6 primary CDC Teen-Friendly Sexual Health Provider Standards listed here:
- Cultural and Linguistic Appropriateness
- Comprehensive Services
- Parent/Guardian Involvement
