Mazzoni Center’s Healthy Sexuality Workshop Series
Schedule a How To Love workshop in your school or community program:
How To Love, Mazzoni Center’s healthy sexuality workshop series, delivers comprehensive and interactive workshops for young people ages 13 – 24 and can be implemented both in and outside of school-curriculum. As part of a ten session series, or individually, our workshops aim to promote an understanding and appreciation of sexuality in order to strengthen communication skills and enhance health and well-being. Our trained staff work to address factors motivating behavior—including the role of sexual risk-taking—as a part of social and emotional development. Our interactive approach incorporates young people’s beliefs and responses as part of the pedagogical strategy.
Each 45-minute session , can be offered as a series, or individually, and can be extended as needed to provide additional information and/or to meet the specific needs of your group. The curriculum is designed to be appropriate for young people ages 13-24 of all races/ethnicities, gender expressions and sexual orientation and identities.
“The workshops that the Mazzoni Center offers are extremely relevant and important to providing much needed educational information that all students need in order to make well informed decisions in their lives. Not only was Tari extremely knowledgeable regarding the workshop materials presented, but she was captivating to all of our students from 5th to 8th grade alike. Her presentation was seamless, while keeping her audience engaged for the entire workshop. At times, it seemed as though the students were not ready for it to be over.” – Teacher at Grover Washington Jr. Middle School, 2018
