Your Skin Is In
Your Skin Is In is an educational, pledge based program that encourages teens and young adults to make a personal promise that they will protect the skin they’re in. Over the past 8 years, the Melanoma Foundation of New England has exposed over half a million students to this award-winning, educational program.
Now, Your Skin Is In is available nationally and online with a new eLearning curriculum! You can bring this program to your school through a variety of ways with the simple click of a button. Learn more about how you can be involved by watching our video above.
