More than<br> sex ed

More than
sex ed

REAL Essentials compliments any sex ed program. Using the "Whole Person" approach, it nurtures the body, mind and heart, rather than of only focusing on sexual behavior.

Scientifically<br> proven

Scientifically

Content is aligned with research and supported by ongoing partnership with the University of Denver. Activities are taught to each group with developmentally age-appropriate messaging.

Laugh out <br>loud fun!

Laugh out
loud fun!

Participants are energized by hands-on, engaging, learn-by-doing experiences, leaving each with memorable moments they can immediately apply in day-to-day life.

No need to <br>be negative

No need to
be negative

Scare tactics aren't motivating. REAL Essentials teaches toward the positive rather than away from the negative. Using this method, individuals are motivated to acheive their best, not to feel their worst.

Make it<br> personal

Make it
