“Empowering Our Inner and Outer Selves”
Today, kids are immersed in a culture and exposed to mixed and inaccurate messages about sexuality by portraying relationships that lack healthy boundaries and mutual respect.
While more girls are affected by sexual harassment, boys are also negatively affected because of the school environment that tolerates it, making them feel unsafe. Lack of school interventions make everyone feel insecure.
Champions Against Bullying workshops offer a realistic and respectful approach allowing teens to talk about specific issues they face relating to sex, sexuality, and sexual power. Together, we will “decode” some of the manipulative and provocative images being used by the media and provide guidelines to defeat the myths surrounding teen sex.
