Take Charge Community Education Program - A division of the Calgary Pregnancy Care Centre
Sex matters to teens. They’re talking about it; we join in and help facilitate the discussion.
The Pregnancy Care Centre takes seriously, not only its commitment to helping those in crisis in the community, but also to providing preventative education for Calgary’s teenagers. Since 1986 the CPCC has been offering sexual health education for junior high and high school students, free of charge, through the Take Charge Community Education Program - a division of the CPCC. In the 2011/2012 school year alone, we spoke with over 16,000 students and parents in Calgary and the surrounding areas.
The Take Charge Program aims to help teens navigate pressing questions regarding sex, relationships, and dating. Our hope is that through education, dialogue, and asking the right questions, our teens will be better able to discern between healthy and unhealthy perspectives and behaviours. Emphasizing respect, personal worth and value, and the right to refuse, our Take Charge Program presents abstinence as a way of respecting self and others.
Workshops are interactive and discussion oriented. Oh yeah, and FUN! Information focuses on the prevention of unplanned pregnancy, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and the importance of healthy relationships.
Number of people we spoke to in the 2011/2012 school year: 16,829!
Workshops are free of charge & facilitated by trained presenters.
