​MISSION & HISTORY

Jeanette Fanconi, the Check - the Facts Director, is a credentialed teacher with a Master's Degree in Education. 

 

She believes in educating, equipping, and empowering young people so that they can make life-affirming choices as they develop and become who they are meant to be in order to pursue their life goals.

Jeanette began developing the Check the Facts curriculum in January 2013 after working with a local high school district to develop a teen parenting program.

 

Since that time, she has continually updated and added to the curriculum in order to provide the most up-to-date sexual health information to area youth.

We feel strongly that encouraging our youth to make educated, healthy decisions will not only improve their own lives, but the state of our communities, as well.  Educating our youth on the facts about sexuality is important and necessary in helping them make good decisions.
