Our Comprehensive Sexuality Education program aims to reduce crisis pregnancy among youth in Hong Kong, and we have been encouraged by the positive response from schools as we work to help youth move beyond basic knowledge acquisition to making informed and responsible decisions, affecting their attitudes and changing behaviors. Thank you for your commitment to equip the youth of Hong Kong with knowledge to help them make informed and responsible decisions.

Comprehensive Sexuality Education is age and developmentally appropriate, and takes a culturally relevant approach to teaching about sex and relationships. The term ‘comprehensive’ emphasizes an approach to sexuality education that includes a wide variety of sexuality-related topics, such as human development, relationships, decision-making, communication, consent, abstinence, contraception, unintended pregnancy, and disease prevention. Our Comprehensive Sexuality Education program aims to reduce crisis pregnancy among youth in Hong Kong and follows our guiding values to:

  • Promote healthy behaviors
  • Ensure the safety of youth
  • Ensure their right to information

Workshops for Youth

A series of 3 workshops are available for each year group from F.1 (Grade 7) to F.4 (Grade 10), which are done in a sequential manner. For any participating year group, schools must arrange all 3 workshops as stated on the curriculum table below. Each workshop is one hour long and is designed for classroom sizes of 40 students or fewer to maximize interaction between educators and youth.

Research shows that Comprehensive Sexuality Education, when delivered appropriately, empowers youth to protect themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. It encourages abstinence, delays sexual initiation, reduces the number of sexual partners, and increases consistent contraceptive use if youth are already sexually active.

Workshops for Parents & Teachers

Research shows that one of the most important factors for youth to delay sexual activity is by having multiple open discussions with parents and teachers (trusted adults). Our parent/teacher workshops are designed to equip adults to initiate dialogue and create open channels for communication with their children/students, identify signs that their child/student is in an abusive relationship, and know how to support youth if they find themselves in a crisis situation such as an abusive relationship, pregnancy, or sexually transmitted infection.

These workshops can be held as part of professional development programs, parent coffee mornings, and PTA talks.
