May 2007 - Connect To Youth is now offering workshops on communicating with youth about issues of sex and sexuality.
Have you ever wondered what adolescents think about when it comes to sex? Do you ask yourself if they hear you when you talk to them about sexuality? C2Y trainers help build comfort communicating with youth and answer your questions about what goes on in the mind of an adolescent when it comes to sex.
Talking about sexuality with adolescents can be challenging for many adults. This workshop is for parents, guardians, front-line staff, educators, and others who work with youth.
In addition, if you want information about current trends in adolescent sexuality (like present rates of Chlamydia in high school age youth), current promising-practices interventions (efficacy of harm reduction vs. abstinence programs), or want to know technical information (what is LGV). C2Y can further customize your workshop by inviting one of our partnering public health educators. This allows a content expert to do a 1-hour presentation on public health issues before the interactive component with the youth trainers.
Please see Workshops for Booking Details and schedule.
Connect To Youth continues through the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council, Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited, Bank of Montreal, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, and Scotiabank. This project was originally made possible with funding from the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.
