Feedback from Teachers & Facilitators:

  • “It’s honestly been so engaging and fantastic.”
  • “It’s really kid-friendly. They understand it. It’s not dumbed down or too technical.”
  • “They feel more empowered from the information about contraception, healthy relationships, and STI’s.”
  • “…they also are probably better equipped to be in healthy relationships…”
  • “It does not use ‘scare tactics’; it utilizes a ‘positive take’ on sexuality.”
  • “I would definitely teach BIG DECISIONS again.
