April Newsletter

One year in to the pandemic and there finally seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel. As a small organization, at the end of March 2020 we feared that covid-19 would result in the shuttering of our metaphorical doors. Instead we have made it through knowing more about how and why we teach and train in the field of human sexuality. Our team is slowly being vaccinated. We hope to return to in person teaching by August and to expand our virtual classes. Something we never thought we would do. 

TEACHING SEX ED ONLINE

Take two is coming to an end! Next month is our final session of version 2.0 of our Teaching Sex Ed Online web series. You can read more about the first, second, and Spanish versions and even register to watch the full ten+ hour course here (Spanish here). As we mentioned above, our team is getting vaccinated, so while we normally held these sessions every first Thursday of the month, we rescheduled this month due to a vaccine appointment. Therefore, our live session for April, Session 9 – Know that this is going to be awkward for everyone, is Thursday April 8th from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm CT.

UN|HUSHED: The Middle School Curriculum Training starts on Monday June 28th at 10:00am CT and runs for 4 hours each day, ending on Friday July 2nd at 2:00pm CT.

I am particular impressed by Karen’s sharing how to facilitate an online session (I’ve never thought of setting ‘no private chat’ as one of the methods for creating a safe virtual space).

Hey Parents/Guardians of high school aged peeps!

We’re moving our virtual sex ed course for ages 15-17 from a semester long program to a drop-in style “attend as you’re able to” weekly session. Each Sunday evening our amazing facilitators will guide youth through a session from the high school curriculum, eventually running through the full 38 hour course. Listen, we know everyone is busy. Youth have practice and/or a job and other stuff going on. So instead of committing to every week, now they can pick and choose which Sunday nights they drop by our virtual class.

Youth can fill out an intake form and get the zoom link here: intake form
