community education

 

Since 2001 The Pregnancy Centre has been partnering with community groups and local Public and Catholic schools. We offer 5 unique presentations targeted to students in grades 7 through 12. The goal of these presentations is to educate and challenge students on matters of sexual health, sexual decision-making and healthy relationships. Each presentation meets the requirements of the Ontario sex ed curriculum and is presented in an unbiased and engaging manner.

The presentations are delivered by Katrina Davidson, the centre’s Community Education Director. Topics addressed include: decision-making, sexually transmitted infections, methods of contraception (including the option of choosing to wait), sexting, consent, healthy relationships, pregnancy, and awareness of community support services. If you would like more information about our presentations, to meet Katrina or to book a presentation for your class or community group, please contact Katrina today.

I like that a wide variety of topics are covered. I like that there are opportunities for students to ask questions. The topics are relatable to teenagers. There are stories thrown in that provide context for the students.

StudentHIGH SCHOOL

Thanks for being so open about something people can be so afraid to talk about.

TeacherHIGH SCHOOL

The individual class presentations are excellent! They are appropriate and interactive. The presentation gives the students information to enable them to make their own knowledgeable choices. Students feel comfortable discussing these issues without embarrassment.

StudentHIGH SCHOOL

Thank you so much for your inspiring presentation!

TeacherHIGH SCHOOL

Awesome work today – some really great information! I loved your conversational presentation style and your honesty in presenting this important information. I know the students learned today and were forced to reflect on key decisions that they will have to make in the near future. And that makes today a good day in education!
