MAY 2020: New resources from the Sex Education Collaborative
As remote learning continues for much of the country, members of the Sex Education Collaborative (SEC), including the Responsible Sex Education Institute have created a new online Training Hub with a wide variety of professional development offerings for educators and school administrators.
The SEC envisions a world in which all young people’s right to comprehensive, high-quality sex education is recognized and fulfilled. This vision can only be realized if educators have the knowledge, training, and support to effectively deliver sex education.
SexEducationCollaborative.org gathers trusted trainings and resources from national, regional, and state-based sex education organizations for access wherever educators and administrators are working. In addition to this newest offering, members have jointly created the Professional Learning Standards for Sex Education, released last year.
FEB 2020: Healthy Bodies, Healthy Boundaries Video Series
The Responsible Sex Education Institute partners with the SAVA Center and the Arc of Larimer County to provide education for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities in a series called Healthy Bodies, Healthy Boundaries.
As supplemental materials for this series, we also partnered to create videos starring people with I/DD who have a passion for acting. We build discussion questions in to help folks process the video scenarios and develop their social skills and awareness around these topics.
