The Sexual Health Education Program provides comprehensive, shame-free sexuality education for youth through classroom workshops for youth and adults, individual and small group education, and youth leadership programming. Safer sex supplies, including condoms, are available to youth for free.
Classroom workshops are facilitated by staff and volunteers in elementary, middle, and high schools as well as organizations. Topics focus on sexual health, healthy relationships, and sexual & gender identities. A complete listing of our workshops for youth can be found here.
We also offer workshops for adults that are designed for both professionals as well as parent groups to support positive sexual and identity development among youth. A complete listing of our workshops for adults can be found here.

SHARE (Sexual Health and Relationship Education) is open on Tuesdays from 3:30-6:30pm; staff are available for youth to come individually or in small groups to receive safer sex supplies like condoms and speak with a sexuality educator to get questions answered. If needed, referrals are made to local healthcare clinics and organizations. You can find our resource list here.
The Brave Circles Project is an ongoing effort to train youth leaders to engage with peers and adults to support healthy relationships and sexuality among young people. This year, Youth Leaders are focused on starting conversations between youth and caregivers about sexual health, relationships, and identities through the creation of educational materials and events.
