Focus group for youth under 24: sexual health and education pleasure project!

May 28th, 2008     by Jessica Yee     Comments

The Good For Her Sexual Health, Education & Pleasure Project (SHEPP) is a new not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide free pleasure based sexual health education workshops to youth and other marginalized communities. These workshops are available throughout the Greater Toronto Area.

We come to your organization or group to provide information on a wide spectrum of issues regarding sex, sexuality, health and pleasure. This includes topics such as healthy relationships, HIV/AIDS and other STI preventions, pregnancy, sexuality, communication and all kinds of different sex. Our focus is on inclusion and the promotion and respect for diversity.

We will be hosting a youth focus group on Thursday June 5 for all youth under 24 to assist us in developing relevant curriculum for the project. We want to hear the perspectives of youth on what pleasure based sexual education means to them, what they would like to learn about, and other opinions on sexual health and sexuality. This will ensure the creation of accurate materials and information for the efficacy of the project to empower youth.
