Workshop A - Skills Building for Quality Sexual Health Education: This workshop will focus on three of the six core skills needed to effectively facilitate sex education. This workshop does not include information on content such as birth control methods, STDs, healthy relationships, etc. Educators are strongly encouraged to brush up on their content knowledge prior to participating in this workshop.
Workshop B - Training of Trainers (TOT) for Implementing Parent Workshops: This TOT will prepare attendees with everything they need to successfully implement a parent education workshop developed by Vermont sexuality education experts. You do not need to be a sexuality expert to teach this workshop! You just need to be willing to lead parents in how to have conversations about relationships, health, and human sexuality with their children!
