Sex & Responsibility
Our educational programs are intended to help parents talk to their teens about the sensitive issues of sexual health, while conveying the importance of sexual health and the prevention of unintended pregnancies and disease. Our Sex & Responsibility class teaches teens (ages 13-18) and their parents about topics such as abstinence planning, birth control methods, sexually transmitted infections, and drug/alcohol abuse.

These classes are offered as an all-day (9:30A to 3:00P) Saturday workshop to accommodate busy schedules. Home classes are available, see below for details.

Cost:
$75 for teen and parent, $25 per additional child or parent.
Workshop fee includes snack, lunch, and drinks.
Scholarships are available to assist families with class fees.

Dates and Location to be announced

Sexuality Education Classes at Your Location
We can also provide these classes in schools, community centers, places of worship, or in participant's homes, using the same teen/parent curriculum and supplemental materials as our on-site classes. These are excellent for neighbors, friends, family, congregations, or other social groups with children who may feel more comfortable in a familiar environment with people they know. A minimum of six families is required.

Youth in the Know
Youth in the Know (YITK) invites teens 13-18 years of age to participate in a FREE 6-week group education session.
