About SHIFT NC
SHIFT NC (Sexual Health Initiatives For Teens) is a statewide nonprofit leading North Carolina to improve adolescent and young adult sexual health.
Founded in 1985 as the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Campaign of North Carolina, the organization has set and exceeded ambitious goals in support of reducing teenage pregnancy in NC and created initiatives that have been recognized and replicated outside of NC.

Using successful, evidence-based methods to make positive changes SHIFT NC is empowering North Carolina’s professionals to support healthy development.
