Give Teaching Sex Ed a Go!
Give It A Go
Starts: 19 January 2019 14:00 pm
Ends: 19 January 2019 16:30 pm
Are you interested in issues around consent? Perhaps you're a contraception know-it-all or an advocate that STIs should be less stigmatised? Or maybe you'd like to make a difference to young people in the LGBTQ+ community who are nervous about coming out? If you are interested in any of these things and more then volunteering with Sexpression may be for you!
Come along to our Give it a Go session to find out what it is like to teach with us, try out some of the activities we do in schools and learn more about sex education yourself!
We'll give you a brief overview of the types of lessons we run and a bit more information about the society. The session will then focus on our most popular topics - consent, contraception and STIs. You'll have the chance to get involved with lesson planning, play some games and try some of the activities we do when we teach.
This will be a fun and informative session where you can get to know a bit more about what we do and have the chance to chat about issues around sex with like-minded people at the same time. It will also give you an insight into teaching.
Volunteering with Sexpression is the perfect opportunity for anyone interested in careers such as teaching, medicine or nursing. However, it's also for anyone who is interested in empowering young people to make informed decisions about sex. If you would like to volunteer with us after trying out our session, all you'll need is child protection training and a DBS check and then you're ready to go!
