Step Up Now ( S.U.N) Presentation for Parents and Youth Workers

January 12 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm AKST

Did you know the state of Alaska consistently rates the highest in the nation for sexually transmitted infections per capita?

Did you know that half of all new occuring sexually transmitted diseases are among 15- 24 yr olds?

Did you know that teens feel pressured to have sexual intercourse, rather than delay, because of comprehensive sexual education?

As adults invested in the quality of life of our youth, we want to change these statistics.

Join us for an informative presentation on the updated SUN program and the unique risks to Alaskan youth. There will also be a Q + A time afterward. This event is geared toward parents, pastors, educators and anyone who works with or raises young adults.

The Step Up Now (SUN) program uses the Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) approach instead of Sexual Risk Reduction. SRA seeks to help young individuals eliminate risk as opposed to simply reducing it. This interactive presentation shifts the focus from the problem to the solution: healthy boundaries, strong identities, and self worth.
