POWER UP offers a variety of customized sexual health workshops to draw together the school community network across Vancouver Island and beyond, including students, parents, teachers and concerned community members.
Did you know that our newsletter is one year old this month?! We thought we’d celebrate by sharing some of the things that Power Up Workshops offers the community.
We offer K-12 classroom sexual health education, including the new B.C. K-9 Physical and Health Education curriculum. We can provide teacher and educational assistant professional development throughout British Columbia. We also offer in-home sessions for parents (you choose the topic, the date and invite some friends!) and private client sessions. And, the learning never stops with summer programming for ages 3-10.
Happy New Year! Well, it is for parents, kids and teachers. I took August off to record two new videos, which I’m excited to share with you. As a new school year begins it’s a good time to review some basics about touch with your child.
There are three kinds of touch: safe, unsafe and secret. Safe touch makes you fell good, safe and loved. Unsafe touch can make you feel hurt, angry or embarrassed. Secret touch makes you fell weird or confused and involves your private body parts. Encourage your child to always tell a trusted adult if they’ve been touched inappropriately, or they’ve been asked to keep touch a secret.
