About RSEI

Why sex ed

Knowledge is for everyone, and having access to sex education ensures that individuals have the skills they need to make healthy decisions about their bodies and relationships throughout their lifetime. Having access to fact-based, non-judgmental sex education is critical for young people because the decisions youth make regarding relationships, sexuality, and sexual behavior can impact not just their health, but also their well-being for the rest of their lives.

What is RSEI?

Whether it is working with youth or adults, the Responsible Sex Education Institute has a variety of programming options that meet our communities’ needs. Our trained sex education experts are skilled at facilitating groups of all ages and abilities in a variety of settings such as schools, community organizations, and churches.
