As our nation is grappling with significant racial unrest, our local classrooms and students are not immune from the impact of race and racism. This half-day (virtual) training will explore how myths, stereotypes, racial reproductive history, and facilitator identity impact effective sexuality education and program delivery.
Participants will confront and reflect upon how cultural identity plays a crucial role in teaching and learning in the sex education classroom. This training is intended for anyone implementing a sex education program with young people and the supervisors that support them.
