Empowerment

We empower students to make healthy choices about life, love, sex and relationships by connecting them to medically-accurate information, community resources, safe adults, as well as their families and good friends.

Encouragement

We encourage honest conversation between parents and their children by educating and motivating families to make healthy decisions concerning dating relationships, self-esteem and sex.

Inform & Support

We inform and support preteens, teenagers, and young adults as they face the often confusing issue of sexual health through our 2 programs that are reaching over 8,000 students a year.

Our Programs

Together, Compass and Battle of The Sexes provide relevant, creative and impactful sexual health facts.

Battle of the Sexes is a one-day, off-campus event for high school juniors. This comprehensive event is designed as a “booster shot” to our 10-day program, Compass. We strive to empower students to navigate the craziness of life, relationships and dating. The goal is to help these students become strong and healthy young adults by teaching basic life skills as they prepare to embark on new adventures of their own.
