Sexual Integrity Workshops

Our Sexual Integrity Workshops are taught from a sexual risk avoidance perspective (abstinence-only). Using an interactive approach, we explore healthy choices for our sexuality and the consequences of engaging in high-risk behavior. Through the use of stories, video, statistics, games and discussion, the participants will learn how to make positive choices for their futures by examining the components of healthy relationships and the far reaching results of the choices we make. Those that have made past decisions they regret will be equipped and encouraged to change their direction from one of despair to one of hope.

This workshop covers 22 of the objectives of the New York State Standards in Health Education.
