Our Outreach Education department speaks to the youth in our community in public & private schools, youth groups, and other youth venues using the Aspire curriculum. Our Connexions presentations are designed to help students think through some of the most important decisions of their lives. Specifically, it is designed to help today's youth resist the many pressures pushing them toward sexual activity by making wise choices and decisions. Connexions is about learning to resist the power of the present and choosing instead to pursue future freedoms. Our desire is to equip today's youth with strategies to cultivate healthy relationships, with an emphasis on honoring marriage and reserving sexual expression for the marriage relationship.
In just the past two years, nearly 80,000 students participated in a Connexions presentation. Our individualized programs and presentations are designed specifically for sixth grade through high school aged students. Our curriculum has been reviewed and approved by the US Department of Health and Human Services, specifically the Administration for Children and Families Bureau. Our presentations are perfect for students in public schools, private schools, and youth serving organizations.
These are critical moments in a teen’s life. Decisions they make now will likely shape their life for years to come. The teen years are a time when the pressure is the greatest, and sexual activity has the potential to take their life in a different direction. Resisting pressures is one of the best things a young person can do to keep their life on track and to accomplish their future goals and dreams. We are empowering teens to make decisions that put their sexual health and their goals as priorities. After seeing our program over 90% of students say our program is helpful or very helpful.(Statistics based on student evaluations.)
Connexions is currently scheduling presentations for today's youth and searching for passionate presentation speakers and administrative volunteers.
