Facilitating sex education effectively requires unique skills to create safe and supportive environments and promote student learning. Teachers and educators often receive limited training in these core skills. Foundations offers a convenient full day training which covers these skills:

  • Climate Setting
  • Values Exploration
  • Managing Self-Disclosure
  • Responding to Challenging Questions

The Teen Pregnancy & Prevention Partnership will be offering a limited number of free Foundations Trainings throughout Missouri in the Spring and Summer of 2019.
