Making Proud Choices
This is a 4 day workshop series highlighting sexuality education for high school and middle school students with disabilities. The workshop includes issues of sexual health, preventing teen pregnancy, STD, and HIV. Students with disabilities don’t always receive sexuality education in high school or they don’t receive it in a way that is accessible to them. Our goal is to empower adolescents with disabilities to make healthy sexual decisions that will significantly decrease their risk of becoming involved in unintended pregnancies and becoming infected with STD’s. The curriculum stresses that abstinence is the most effective way to eliminate these risks while realizing that many adolescents do not choose abstinence. Consent, boundaries, safety, and how to recognize healthy vs. unhealthy relationships are also discussed. (Youth with disabilities)
When: July 11th – July 14th, 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Where: Independence First 540 S. 1st St. Milwaukee, WI 53204
