Life Talks

Life Talks are 2-hour classes focusing on important life skills such as Internet safety, fostering healthy relationships, dealing with peer pressure, and good communication. If you want to start on lighter topics before discussing sex and growing up, you can schedule these classes before Talk 1. Or you can use them to stay connected between Talk courses.

Below is a list our Life Talks continuing education classes. We can also customize topics upon request.

BFFs and Frenemies

Preteen and teen social life is a minefield of drama, secrets, cliques, bullies, jealousy, and gossip. In this course we give kids tips on how to fit in and what to do about feeling left out. It's all about what kids should expect of friendship - how they should expect to be treated and how they should treat their friends.

Under Pressure

Kids learn tips and techniques to take the pressure off of being pressured. They learn the difference between passive, aggressive, and assertive communication and how to use their body language, tone, and words to combat unwanted pressure. Includes role plays and mock situations to practice.
