Relationship Education: Middle School Program

Details:

Book us for your school or group today by filling out our contact form.

Virtual Dates: Coming Soon!

Let us prepare your student to know themselves and navigate relationships.

In our education classes, we begin by developing intrinsic motivation for making healthy life choices. We strive to help students cultivate healthy and safe relationships and expand their concept of intimacy far beyond mere physical interaction.  We also provide medically accurate information about anatomy, STIs, pregnancy, and contraception.  Finally, we discuss the social and emotional impacts of technology in relationships and conduct capstone activities designed to weave the concepts together to create actionable, realistic steps for students to make healthy life choices.  The goal of Hope Clinic for Women’s Relationship Education program is to ensure students are empowered with accurate information and powerful personal experiences to make healthy choices for their own lives.  It is our experience that, equipped with knowledge and strategies within a safe and trusting environment, adolescents have the ability and inclination to refrain from non-marital sexual activity and other risky behaviors, seeing them as obstacles to their own goals and dreams.  Middle school education focuses on puberty and understanding influences on one’s decision-making.  More explicit sexual health content (e.g., pregnancy, STIs, etc.) are not addressed until high school programming.  We never want to steal the innocence of a child.  We encourage parents and educators who identify a need for middle school students to receive education on these topics to consider participating in our parent workshop series, teacher professional development and/or consider enrolling the child in our online student education program.
