Nu-CULTURE is a classroom-based relationship education program for grades 6-8. This curriculum helps students understand the risk associated with early sexual activity and develop skills necessary to make healthy decisions and avoid risky behaviors. It emphasizes increasing skills and self-efficacy in communication and refusal skills using through age-appropriate, medically accurate information about teen pregnancy prevention, sexually transmitted infections, and other sexual health topics The Nu-CULTURE curriculum consists of eight 50-minute sessions each in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, for a total of 24 sessions over the course of three years.
Love Notes aims to assist diverse youth in building healthy and safe relationships and in identifying a personally meaningful context and pace for sex that is responsible and protective of health and heart. The goal of Love Notes is to move beyond a narrow health-based dangers and risks approach (while providing medically-accurate STI and reproductive health information) towards a holistic, integrated, and proactive approach of positive youth development, healthy relationships, pregnancy/STI, and IPV prevention. Love notes focuses on making wise relationship and sexual choices; ones that will assist youth rather than create barriers for achieving their education, employment, relationship and family goals. Love Notes is a new kind of program that integrates healthy relationship education with pregnancy/STI and dating violence prevention. Love Notes is trauma-informed; it supports youth in learning more about themselves, in making meaning of their past, and cultivating a vision of what they want. Youth acquire skills, knowledge, and confidence to reach for their goals.
