When 2020 hit, it gave us the opportunity to work on a project that we've carried in our hearts for many years.
That was the creation of teenBRAVE.
teenBRAVE is a wellbeing program broken into five key modules with a series of video-based content, delivered in a classroom by the teacher.
Included are workbooks and group discussion questions guided by the classroom teacher. The key modules are consent, pornography, anger, the value of the human person and sexting.
teenBRAVE is designed to roll out over a term, allowing teenagers to unpack the information on a weekly or fortnightly basis.
Often, when teachers are faced with discussing the topic of sex and relationships with their students there can be some real apprehension. How do I talk to students about this? How do I do that in an appropriate way? What am I allowed to say? What am I not allowed to say?
Throughout the course, WE are talking to them about these taboo topics. Using the appropriate language and giving students scientific based information in an easy to digest manner.
We see teenBRAVE as the guide.
Our course enables teachers to become the heroes, engaging meaningfully with their students one conversation at a time.
