Get Real: Comprehensive Sex Education That Works is a comprehensive sexuality education curriculum designed for middle and high school aged youth. It is available as a curriculum package that includes teacher training and support as well as family activities.
Let's Be Honest: Communication in Families That Keeps Kids Healthy is a program designed to provide parents of children in middle school with useful skills, information and resources to help them be successful in their role as the primary sexuality educators of their children. And, because we know middle school isn't the only time for parents to have ongoing conversations with youth about sexuality topics, we offer age-appropriate workshops for parents of children in early childhood, elementary and high school. In addition, our Seamos Honestos parent education program is offered in Spanish and creates an environment of trust and comfort to help parents talk to their children about sex and sexuality.
The Get Real Teen Council is a sexual health peer education program for high school students in Massachusetts.
The Professional Training program of the Education department stands as one of the most popular programs at Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts. Teachers, nurses, social workers and other professionals who work with youth recognize PPLM as a trusted source of factual information on topics of sexual health, as well as experts in techniques of education delivery in the classroom.
We’re very excited to roll-out a brand-new training for professionals on creating inclusive spaces for people of all sexual identities and genders! This training will cover vocabulary, using gender neutral language and correct pronouns, answering tough questions, and will provide opportunities for skill building utilizing real-life examples – plus more! Any and all are welcome to attend, including educators, nurses, school nurses, human resource professionals, medical and health providers, disability service providers, youth-serving professionals, law enforcement officers, etc.
The Protection Methods Demonstration Kit is the most comprehensive resource for teaching about contraception and protection methods. It ships in a heavy duty, clear, plastic case designed for portability.
