We provide youth-serving professionals with the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary to have effective, medically accurate, age-appropriate sexuality conversations with young people. Participants will have the opportunity to acquire the most up-to-date information and resources regarding sexuality, explore their own values around sexuality, and participate in skill-building opportunities.

Frequently covered topics include: 

  • The development of sexuality over the lifespan

  • Anatomy and reproduction

  • Pregnancy prevention and contraceptive methods

  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and infections (STIs), including their transmission, treatment, and prevention
