Our presentations provide a comprehensive and holistic approach that focus on the real-life struggles teens face as they navigate through the difficult adolescent years. We teach youth the benefits of avoiding risky behaviors such as: sexual activity, alcohol, drugs, and violence.
Sexual risk avoidance (SRA) education makes clear that having sex can potentially affect teens emotionally, psychologically, socially, economically, and may also have educational consequences, as research shows. This is why topics frequently discussed in an SRA class include: how to build a healthy relationship; how to avoid or get out of a dangerous and unhealthy relationship; developing skills to make good decisions; establishing goals and taking realistic steps to reach them; understanding and avoiding STIs; information about contraceptives and their effectiveness against pregnancy and STIs; practical ways to avoid inappropriate sexual advances; and why waiting until a committed long lasting relationship to engage in sexual activity is optimal.
Our presentations are designed with a risk avoidance approach, teaching youth the benefits of avoiding risky behaviors such as: sexual activity, alcohol and other drugs, and violence. They provide a comprehensive and holistic approach that focuses on the real-life struggles teens face as they navigate their difficult adolescent years.
