About Us

History

The In*Touch (formally known as S.H.E.) sexual health educators program at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts, was founded in 1990. The organization was originally created as an educational session for students wanting better access to various forms of contraception. As a result, the model evolved into a program that allowed for trained students to educate their peers in the areas of contraceptive health, GYN exams, breast exams, women's health, sexually transmitted infections, etc.

Topic workshops are held frequently during the fall semester, while the spring semester is dedicated to larger, more specific projects, such as lectures, sexual health fairs, designing educational games, and creating educational posters.

Mission Statement

In*Touch is a peer education group dedicated to providing accurate sexual health information and fostering an open and safe environment that breaks down stereotypes by reaching out to the diverse communities of Mount Holyoke College.
