Held on the Teachers College, Columbia University campus, this fully-funded program consists of a teacher training on sex education with a focus on Reproductive Identity Formation (RIF). This specialized training supports the adolescent development of decision-making and perspective-taking skills for intentional pregnancy prevention and family planning. Participants learn from content area experts, explore their own personal values and norms, and discuss how to then similarly engage their students and community. A foundational core skills training on sex education will also be provided along with vouchers to purchase additional instructional materials.
Deadline: December 1, 2019
