We know that sex ed is essential education for all students, but we know that no method of teaching will work for all students. During this training, we’ll dive into tactics for catering learning spaces to diverse learners, including those who are part of marginalized groups. We'll teach learners how to identity their "Learners in Focus" and take time to find potential solutions to the hurdles educators face.
