Sex matters to teens. They’re talking about it. We join in and help facilitate the discussion.
The Bancroft Pregnancy Care Centre not only takes its commitment to helping those in crisis in the community seriously, but also in providing preventative education for Bancroft and area teenagers. Since 2005, the BPCC has been offering sexual health education for high school students, free of charge. The program aims to help navigate pressing questions regarding sex, relationships and dating. Our hope is that through education, dialogue and asking the right questions, our teens will be better able to discern between healthy and unhealthy perspectives and behaviours. Emphasising respect, personal worth and value as well as the right to refuse, our program presents abstinence as a viable choice as well as a way of respecting self and others.
Workshops are interactive, discussion oriented and fun. Information focuses on the prevention of unplanned pregnancy, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and the importance of healthy relationships.
