The instructors create a safe environment for students to ask the questions that they need to ask, and learn about other types of people that they share this world with. Following this program, I have seen my students identify and report unhealthy relationships, have difficult conversations with their significant others, and most importantly leave the program knowing their rights and their options as teenagers.

Not all teachers are comfortable with presenting this content. Having a knowledgeable and comfortable educator makes the material accessible to the children.

Excellent educators are my favorite part of the program.

The knowledge of each topic was outstanding, along with the professionalism…the conversations allowed students to learn more while establishing a relaxed and anxiety-free atmosphere.

I have been continually impressed by the relevant and age-appropriate curriculum that engages all of my students. Moreover, the curriculum does not seek to make decisions for students, rather give them the tools so that when they do need to make decisions regarding their sexual health, they are well equipped. I will be inviting Teen Talk into my classroom for as long as I am an educator because of the positive impact I’ve seen its programs have on my students’ lives.
