Teachers will easily be able to pull out relevant lessons as they need them in order to meet the curriculum competencies for social and community health and mental well-being. Workshop participants will gain skills to teach teens how to build healthy relationships and prevent dating violence. The workshop will also include discussions of: personal boundaries, gender identity and sexual orientation, sexting, and consent.
