This program is designed by a trained sexuality educator and will nurture the three "R's" of sexuality education: respect, relationship, and responsibility. We seek to help youth gain self-respect and respect for others, build relationships with people of all genders and with many kinds of families, and understand their responsibilities regarding their own health and that of others. Program content will include explicit, age-appropriate educational content relating to sexuality, gender, and sexual health. Parents may reach out to staff about the curriculum at any time.
