The NSDRC aims to support our families and their kids in developing and practicing online safety and communication skills and body and health knowledge in your home through online learning.
On Sunday January of 24, 2021, we will be launching our sexual health education program – the Healthy Relationships Curriculum – with Jessica Wollen, a teacher and Certified Sexual Health Educator who has supported the NSDRC children and youth for more than five years.
The Healthy Relationships Curriculum (HRC) – a Shift Education Curriculum – follows the BC Ministry of Education’s Physical and Health Education learning outcomes. This program has been developed for children and youth ages 10+.
The HRC is a series of ten unique PowerPoint presentations focused on teaching:
- SAFETY – having a safe adult to seek guidance from; being free from physical, emotional, offline or online abuse; and having access to age-appropriate content
- SCIENCE – understanding the human body, sex in biological terms, and where to access reliable, well-researched, and reputable information
- SELF – critical thinking skills, healthy decision making, healthy relationship knowledge, skill building, and understanding what consent looks like and feels like
