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 second annual Virtual Sex Ed Bootcamp for educators and youth-serving professionals! This year's theme is "Exploring Identity Through 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.  

Sex Ed Boot Camp is not a curriculum-specific training. Happening July 19-22. Registration is now open! Click here to register!
