The Conversation CollectiveDenver

The Conversation Collective is an educational organization that helps families navigate historically awkward conversations about health, development and growing up. The Collective offers a variety of courses for students and parents around puberty, sexuality and relationships, and all are intended to be founded in each individual family's values. The Conversation Collective does have it's own set of values in that all people are entitled to their own attitudes and beliefs about sexuality and that knowledge of human sexuality is helpful not harmful. The Collective maintains that it is healthier for young teens to postpone sexual activity. Research shows that students who have comprehensive sex ed classes, and whose parents are the primary educator in this subject area are far more likely to delay sexual relationships and have fewer sexual partners over the course of a lifetime. The Conversation Collective would love to work with your family, your homeschooling network or any youth groups that your children are associated with to help empower and educate you and your children. The youth only classes has a companion class for parents so that you are aware of the course content and can learn strategies for continuing the conversations at home.
