Innovations: Creating Male-focused Activities That Males Are Hungry To Join!
Are you looking for new and innovative ideas for male-focused outreach in your community? Let PPWNY, home of the Responsible Males Program, unlock your creative ideas in a process designed for the development of original, stimulating, and inspiring activities to which males in your community will want to show up and participate.
Circle of Friends Program Training
The new Circle of Friends Program is a female-focused, science-based, comprehensive sexuality education program designed specifically for adolescent girls. What makes this program unique is that it takes into account “hot cognition” and teaches girls how to make healthy judgment-based choices (on the spot choices) in addition to the more traditional decision/problem solving-based choices.

The training covers lesson planning and program development methods as well as training programs for sex educators that covers everything from mission and vision, core competencies, coaching and mentoring, and evaluating sex educators.
