4th Annual Virtual Sex Ed Boot Camp: Reconnecting to our Roots Through Community Centered Sexuality Education

2023 Registration Closed

Sex Ed Boot Camp 

“Sex Ed Boot Camp really challenged me to consider how my own sexuality has been shaped which will then allow me to better assist and provide teens with important information regarding their sexuality.” - SEBC participant 


Difficult questions. Awkward answers. Embarrassing moments. Talking with young people about sexual issues can be challenging. That’s where Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon’s Sex Ed Boot Camp (SEBC) provides support! SEBC helps teachers and other professionals educate and communicate with youth about this complex topic: sex.

Join us for our fourth annual Virtual Sex Ed Bootcamp for educators and youth-serving professionals! This year's theme is "Reconnecting to our Roots Through Community Centered Sexuality Education"

This virtual conference helps youth-facing professionals learn to provide positive, accurate, and age-appropriate sex education in a variety of school and community settings. Participants build knowledge, skills and increase comfort as an approachable resource for young people around sexual health issues. Sex Ed Boot Camp works to increase the network of “askable” adults who are prepared and available to answer challenging questions related to sexual and reproductive health for youth in our communities.  



Answering Challenging Questions

Have you ever faced a question you simply didn’t know how to answer? It’s not uncommon for us to face questions to which we may not have ready answers. Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon is here to equip you with the tools to provide factual information, guide decision making, and encourage open discussions. Young people deserve opportunities to ask questions and receive answers that are accurate, unbiased, age appropriate, and non-judgmental. In this session, we'll discuss how to respond to common challenging questions about sexual health issues and provide a framework for interpreting and answering the tough ones that come your way.


Adultism and Adult Allies

In this engaging presentation from Ophelia’s Place, we delve into the concept of adultism and explore the critical role of adult allies in building an inclusive and uplifting sexual health environment for youth. Attendees will leave this presentation equipped with valuable tools and insights to challenge adultism, promote authentic connections with youth, and cultivate an inclusive sexual health education landscape. By addressing adultism and promoting adult allies, professionals can create an inclusive environment that recognizes and values the unique experiences and perspectives of youth, fostering open dialogue and empowerment in sexual health discussions. 


Supporting Survivors through Trauma Informed Care

Supporting Survivors through Trauma Informed Care In this insightful presentation from Lane County SASS, we focus on equipping youth-serving professionals with the knowledge and tools to create trauma-informed and supportive spaces for young survivors of sexual assault. Participants will leave this presentation with practical insights and trauma-informed approaches to address the sensitive needs of survivors. By integrating trauma-informed principles into their practices, youth-serving professionals can play a crucial role in cultivating a safe, inclusive, and empowering sexual health landscape for young survivors, allowing them to navigate their sexuality with strength and confidence.


Fat Liberation: Access and Care

Anti-fatness is pervasive and life threatening. Studies have found that children who are considered “overweight” are more than 4 times as likely than their peers to experience bullying and harassment. In this workshop, from gender and sexuality educator Nat DiFrank, we will explore the historical roots of fatphobia and challenge misconceptions about fatness. Together we will begin to unpack the effects of systematic anti-fatness, while learning how to support youth through a fat liberation framework. Folks of any level of familiarity with fat liberation are welcome.
