Where Hope Begins

TAKE CHARGE!

Let's talk about sex...                         necessary conversations

Our Mission is to empower teens through providing current and accurate education regarding sexuality, health, risks, consequences and realities so that they can ensure a healthy, and positive sexual future free of STI's and unplanned pregnancies. 


We believe that education is essential for the growth, development and advancement of people. Education through interactive discussion is a proactive vs. reactive approach to tackling many of the issues faced by today’s youth. Our interactive presentations provide discussion, insight and helpful life strategies to both inform and motivate youth to make positive informed decisions which will in turn allow them to Take Charge! Of their sexuality.


You can expect all our presentations to be fun, inclusive and non-judgmental. Our Staff is well-trained, approachable and professional. We can assist teachers in providing follow up support and resources.

" My sex education consisted of TV, internet and being told in class how to put a condom on a banana. Until now I didn't realize I could choose for myself what my sexuality would look like.  I didn't dawn on me that I had rights and that if someone wont respect my rights maybe they aren't right for me!"   anonymous student
