 The social, emotional, physical, and psychological transitions experienced by youth throughout the pubertal years have the power to influence attitudes and patterns of behavior throughout life.  Less attention has been paid to the beginning of the reproductive life span than to the middle childbearing years and to menopausal transitions. The Jane Fonda Center is addressing this gap.

The Jane Fonda Center relies on national, state, and local relationships to enhance its work and carry out its mission. The Center is not a source of funding and does not give contracts or grants. However, as part of achieving its mission, it works with others to obtain funds for efforts that cooperatively support the goals and objectives of the Jane Fonda Center.

The Center has special relationships with the Teen Services Program at Grady Memorial Hospital and the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.
