Carlos “Los-1” Ramirez II is a youth educator skilled in presenting the message of sexual purity to teens across America. His style of teaching and outward appearance fit right in with what teens are looking for in a modern classroom setting.

Through these events, Los-1 received two Military Coin Awards for Outstanding Assistance to our country!

With his latest effort, Life Skills, Los and IMPACT present a Hip Hop album promoting sexual integrity among teenagers. Los uses this music to bring a message of character and self-worth to an age that’s breeding sexual confusion among teens worldwide. “One thing about sexual education that’s not current in schools is the style of approach in the classroom.

There has to be a light-hearted yet health conscience stance on teaching teens something you want them to live by” - Los He doesn’t preach, he understands and relates today’s topics to teens while presenting them in a powerful and effective way.

The supplemental curriculum is written for today’s youth, with many object lessons to drive home important facts about healthy choices.

Standing beside Los-1 on a daily basis is A Woman’s Place, in Tampa, Fl. and its Prevention Services Department, IMPACT. With 20 years of service to the bay area and beyond, A Woman’s Place aids singles and couples alike in the areas of pregnancy testing, post abortion counseling, adoption counseling. A Woman’s Place began presenting abstinence education in the schools long before state and federal grant money become available. In 1999, A Woman’s Place joined with the Tampa Metropolitan YMCA and the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County and was awarded its first state Title V/TANFF grant. In 2005, A Woman’s Place was awarded a three-year federal grant for Community Based Abstinence Education.

Los-1 and a team from IMPACT are actively involved in presenting sexual abstinence training to 30 Hillsborough County schools. So with this daily interaction with the youth of today Los is highly skilled to answer current listeners with hip hop styled teaching.
