Why Youth Sex Education Workshops are Important? Because Science Says So!

Youth sex education workshops encourage participants to ask questions and gather all the required knowledge.

One question we often hear is the importance of youth sex education workshops, do they worth it?

The answer to this question is yes, it matters a lot, and it is essential to give sex education to youth. Sex education can be life-changing for people, and it will have noteworthy positive impacts on public health.

There are several types of research that show the positive impacts of high-quality sex education on youth’s life.

Here are some significant impacts:

Impact of Sex Education on Youth

Many people think that sex education will negatively impact youth or encourage them to be more sexually active, but that’s not true and scientific research proves it. However, comprehensive sex education leads youth to have better knowledge and attitudes towards sexuality, including:

Having more knowledge regarding rights within a sexual relationship

Being more communicative with parents regarding relationships and sex

Increase effectiveness to deal with risky situations

Impact of Sex Education on Social Environment

The impacts of sex education are positive and long-term on our social environment. There are numerous researches that look at non-health outcomes, and results show us how sex education can be helpful to bring positive reforms in our society. According to the studies, sex education can:

Help in preventing and reducing gender-based and intimate partner discrimination and violence.

Helpful to build healthier and stronger relationships.

Help to increase confidence, gender equality, and ability to achieve goals.

Having knowledge about building healthier and stronger relationships which can be helpful to prevent social isolation and improve mental health. While these benefits are referred as non-health related outcomes but they have a great impact on our well-being and health. It can help to prevent gender-based violence such as harassment, assault, transphobic, homophobic, and sexist bullying. It can lead to improved mental health and prevent suicide.

How Youth Sex Education Workshops Can Help?

Youth sex education workshops encourage participants to ask questions and gather all the required knowledge. These workshops are tailored for the needs of participants and their outcomes.

Sex education workshops can be helpful for young people to listen, talk and think about sex, relationships and discuss many other sensitive topics in such a way that they won’t feel embarrassed and their privacy remains protected. Also, it can be helpful for them to act wisely on various scenarios that they face on a regular basis.

Sex education is quite a complex subject to teach. Thus, all the workshop participants need to get the information they need and feel comfortable asking anything.

Sex Education is a Worthy Gift for Youth

A well-structured, well-taught sex education workshop can be beneficial for youth development. It can be helpful for the youth to sort out confusing messages they get from their peers, TV, social media, the internet, and movies. They should be able to talk openly and knowledgeably about sex with their parents, lovers, and friends. It can significantly improve their chances to make it through the teen years without facing any traumatized or disturbing sexual experiences. Good sex education can be helpful for the youth to lead happy sex lives as adults. It can be a worthy gift for the youth.

 

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.

The subject content can be revised according to the students’ learning needs.

Contents covered include biological changes during adolescence, introduction to the reproductive system and structure, and general knowledge of personal hygiene.

Youth sex education workshops are suitable for groups of 10-30. It is an ideal way to conduct sex-ed in the classroom. The learning motivation, experience and participation of participants can be enhanced through interactive learning.
