HIV 101
The HIV 101 workshop provides youth participants with an introductory overview of the basics on HIV transmission and prevention. PRY SAFE Peer Educators facilitate engaging activities that include interactive games, brainstorms and discussions about HIV and health related topics.

Sexually Transmitted Infections/Diseases (STIs/STDs)
The STI/STD workshop is an interactive workshop that provides participants with information about the STIs and STDs. The workshop is also focused on how to protect oneself against sexually transmitted diseases and infections, many of which are preventable. The PRY SAFE Peer Educators will lead your students in an honest and direct discussion about what STIs and STDs are, as well as how they are contracted, why people participate in the type of behavior that spreads them and how they can protect themselves.

Contraceptives
The Contraceptives workshop provides an overview of the different birth control methods and to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancy, STIs and STDs including HIV. This workshop, led by our Peer Educators, is informative and fun. It creates an honest space for your young people to learn how to protect themselves and make healthy decisions.

SAFE Teen Health Clinic
The purpose of this workshop is to educate young people on how to access information and services pertaining to their sexual health. It is also to inform them on their rights as young people in accessing sexual health services without the consent of an adult or parent. In the workshop, teens will learn what services are available to them (specifically the Project SAFE Teen Health Clinic), how to make an appointment, and the importance of getting tested.

Be Proud! Be Responsible!
Be Proud! Be Responsible! is a six-part evidence-based curriculum that provides adolescents with the knowledge, motivation, and skills necessary to change their behaviors in ways that will reduce their risk of pregnancy or contracting HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. To change behavior, adolescents need not only information and a perception of personal vulnerability, but also the skills and the confidence in their ability to act safely. The curriculum consists of six 50-minute sessions, which can be presented over one to six days. Be Proud! Be Responsible! includes the following six modules: Module I: Introduction to HIV and AIDS Module II: Building Knowledge About HIV and AIDS Module III: Understanding Vulnerability to HIV Infection Module IV: Attitudes and Beliefs about HIV, AIDS, and Safer Sex Module V: Condom Use Skill Building Module VI: Building Negotiation and Refusal Skills

The Let’s Talk about Sex (for staff or parents)
Talking with youth about sex can be challenging. The Let’s Talk about Sex workshop offers strategies for youth workers on making these conversations easier. During this workshop we will cover “door openers” and “door slammers” for talking with teens, basic principles of Motivational Interviewing, tips for starting the conversation and how to make referrals for sexual health services. Project SAFE is happy to come to your space and can tailor the workshop to the needs of your organization.
