Teaching Teachers on Teen Sexuality Workshop

Forwarded invitation.

Date: May 17-19 (Thursday to Saturday)

Time: 8:00am to 5:00pm

Venue: St. Joseph Retreat House, Manzanas St., Sampaloc Manila

Registration Fee: P1, 500.00 (inclusive of snacks, meals, handouts and certificate)

The training/seminar aims to strengthen the ability of the participants to respond to the needs of today’s teens with respect to issues on human sexuality, marriage, family planning, and population education, according to the teachings of the Catholic Church. Furthermore, this year’s training/seminar is designed to further the participants’ knowledge and understanding of the problem of AIDS in our country, as well as to dissect the objectionable provisions of the RH bill like the mandatory sex education from grade 5 to 4th year high school and providing reproductive health care services to everyone including teenagers and children, among other things.

The modules are specifically designed for teachers, counselors, catechists, parents, lay leaders, youth organizers and others who work or deal with adolescents.

Participants will be trained to implement the training modules on teen sexuality packaged in our manual entitled “LEARNING TO LIVE AND LOVE” and will be provided updated supplementary activity and reading materials.
