Sexual Health & Wellness Programs

Education

Community Education

We offer presentations and/or workshops for community groups serving children, parents, youth, and adults. We are happy to work with you to create a presentation tailored to your group’s needs and interests.

Some topics that could be included:

  • Sexual Anatomy and Physiology
  • Sexuality Throughout the Lifespan
  • Healthy Relationships and Consent
  •  Personal Boundaries and Communication Skills
  • Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity
  • Sexual Decision-Making
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
  • Safer Sex (i.e. condoms, dental dams)
  • Birth Control

The goals of comprehensive sexual health education are to equip people with the information, motivation, and behavioural skills to enhance sexual health and well-being and to prevent outcomes that can have a negative impact on sexual health and well-being.

Community Engagement

activism-4008679_1920

We are passionate about being involved in not only classrooms but also in our community. Our mobile education booth is run by our volunteer Peer Educators who have extensive training around sexual health and wellness. 

We attend various events around Edmonton educating people on sexual health with our interactive games and handing out condoms, lube, and other safer sex barriers. 

Peer Educators

Our Peer Educators are knowledgeable, personable, and enthusiastic about sexual health. We provide opportunities within the community where Peer Educators will share information about safer sex practices, harm reduction and sex positivity. 

We provide in depth training and support with two intake and mandatory training sessions per year. Our Peer Educators become ambassadors in the community to promote comprehensive sexual health and wellness.
