Relationships and Reality
The ID Alliance regularly offers Relationships and Reality workshops for Cleveland teens and youth-serving organizations. Workshops facilitated by the ID Alliance focus on STI prevention, but within a broader context. Through Relationships and Reality workshops, teens can learn about a wide range of issues, including:
- Body Image and Self Awareness
- Healthy Relationships
- Sexual Violence
- Community Resources
Sessions are facilitated by ID Alliance Peer Educators, staff, and guest speakers as applicable. Relationships and Reality lesson plans are adapted from curriculum endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or other professional organizations. For examples of lesson plans and validated STI-prevention curricula, visit Effective Interventions.
Check out our Relationships & Reality winter 2014 schedule! Stay tuned for spring 2014 speakers and session topics.
If you are a leader of a youth-serving organization interested in a Peer Educator-led workshop, let us know. Sessions are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no fee, but a donation of $100 for each one hour session is suggested to cover the cost of Peer Educator stipends and transportation.
Just interested in learning a little more about STIs? Feel free to contact us with any questions, or stop by Teen Night.
“The presentation, ice breaker, and activity was very informative for our young people because this type of information is not talked about in the school and in most cases in the home. Furthermore, I was really impressed with the confidence and clarity of the peer educators in speaking on such a ‘touchy’ subject. The group, staff and parents enjoyed the group all the way around.” -- Youth Advocate at East End Neighborhood House
“I have sat in on several classroom sessions which the ID Alliance facilitated, and am pleased with the material being presented to our youth. I am also impressed with the level of engagement of our students.” -- High School Principal
