Sexual and reproductive health (SRH) of young people encompasses dimensions of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It is so much more than physical health with any sexually transmittable infections (STIs).
In MY PLACE, we are committed to promoting positive sexuality education among young people and the groups they are in close contact with. By cultivating young people with the correct sexual health knowledge, socializing skills to get along with their partners, and diversity in sexual orientations and culture, can help foster comprehensive sexual health and protect them from HIV and other STIs.
MY LIFE SKILLS provides positive sexuality education to young people under the age of 25 through outreach activities, youth sex education workshops, group and peer programs, and online platforms. Besides, we also provide professional training and support to social workers, teachers, and parents who are interested in promoting sexual health education to young people.
We also provide flexible activity options that fit individual needs, please feel free to contact us directly for more details.
What do we talk about in sex-ed?
Adolescence is a time when many young people start to explore their sexuality and develop relationships with others. It is also the time when they experience changes in physical, emotional and social areas. Here are some topics to be covered in our sex-ed programme to give comprehensive guidance to the young minds. The subject content can be revised according to the students’ learning needs.
Body Structure & Puberty
Puberty can be a perplexing time for young people, but it is also a chance to foster appreciation of the body, self-confidence and positive personal image. Contents covered include biological changes during adolescence, introduction to the reproductive system and structure, and general knowledge of personal hygiene.
HIV & STIs
Details of HIV and other common STIs in Hong Kong will be explained, including their transmission routes, prevention methods, treatments, and the local support services available. Participants can understand how to assess their risks of infection, and make the best choice for themselves with all-rounded consideration.
Safer Sex Practice
This session covers the correct use of protections and clarification of some common myths on sexual health. The importance of addressing the need and the use of protection will also be covered to raise the power of negotiation of young people in an intimate relationship.
Focusing on "consent", participants will discuss rights and responsibilities in intimate relationships, explore and recognize their own intimacy boundaries, and learn how to communicate effectively with others to clearly express their expectations about physical contact and other intimate actions.
Participants will explore their own values about relationships, reflect on their expectations of love relationships, and recognize different ways of expressing love and intimacy.
