REAL HG&D PROGRAM INFORMATION AND REGISTRATION
Sexual health is not just about sex--it includes the roles, behaviors and values people associate with being a man or a woman. Educating a child about sexual health is an important part of their healthy development. An early understanding of sex, love, intimacy and their own sexuality can mold their values, behavior--and even their self-image--for a lifetime. "REAL" HG&D teaches young teens the facts about their bodies, healthy relationships and how to make good choices. It is not based on shame, guilt or prejudices. The courses equip young teens with the necessary information to make healthy choices now and in the future.
MEET OUR EDUCATIONAL STAFF!
