Website Connects UFV Students
and pregnancy clinic options
Released by Kylie Bartel, Jelly
students thinking about sexuality, Your Pregnancy Options in Abbotsford (YPO)
has partnered with the University of the Fraser Valley to launch a fresh and
relevant campaign to reach young people who are facing big questions about
pregnancy and sexual health.
Along with giving accurate information, YPO's friendly staff genuinely care
about clients and walk alongside them through difficult decisions. As their
website affirms, "Some decisions you don't have to make alone."
YPO's innovative campaign directs students to a mobile friendly webpage that
uses questions to give truthful information to both men and women. If
students have further questions based on their digital feedback, YPO
welcomes visits, emails, or phone calls, all of which are kept completely
confidential. In order to meet people where they're at, YPO hopes their
digital outreach at UFV will make them more accessible to those who are
overwhelmed by unexpected pregnancies or sexual health concerns.
