Peer-to-Peer Education Program
Peer-to-Peer is a 36 class-hour, age-appropriate, medically accurate, comprehensive sex education program. Program can be co-ed or single sex. We typically do this program twice a week in 2-hour blocks for 9 weeks but can modify number of hours & number of week. 10- 20 students per class. We have a Peer Ed program designed for 12-17 year olds and a Peer Education Program designed for 18-24 year olds.
Modified Peer Education Program
Specific topics from our Peer-to-Peer Program done in a shorter time frame with 10-20 students per class.
Single Subject Presentations
These topics are single presentations or as a series of single subjects. They are done in 1-2 hour timeframes. These presentations are most effective with 25 participants or less. Presentations are modified for age-appropriateness and can be designed for middle school, high school, and adults. (The presentations notated with an asterisk should be presented in the single subject series and should not be presented as stand-alone presentations).

Real Life. Real Talk. Workshop (Sex Ed for Parents)
This is a 90-minute fun event for parents, guardians, and caregivers to increase on-going communication with their tweens or teens about sex and sexual health. It can be followed up with "Spin-off" workshops on any of our single subject topics that they may be interested in to further communicate accurate information with their tweens or teens.
Teen Advocates for Sexual Health (TASH)
This is a group of teens that meet at Planned Parenthood, twice a month that work together to define and act on issues that improve the sexual health of St. Louis area teens. Age range is from 14-18 years old and they meet September through May.
These are one on one sessions to tackle tough subjects. Our trained education staff can work with you, your teen, or clients to help educate about sexual health sessions.
We can provide training programs for professionals who provide sexual health information to youth. Our trainers can tailor a specific program to meet the needs of your organization.
