Tackling Tough Conversations: Sexual Health

5:30pm - 7:00pm
BBBSGC Office - 3600 Clipper Mill Drive, Suite 250
Register Now

Mentors tackle tough topics with mentees that they are often unprepared to discuss. Sexual health issues top the list of uncomfortable topics of conversation! Join us and learn more about sexual health matters and how to discuss them with mentees.

Together, we will tackle the following questions:

  • What’s the rate of youth sexual engagement? 
  • Do youth want to talk about sex with their mentors? 
  • Can mentors influence a youth’s sexual behavior? 
  • How can mentors prepare themselves so they know what to say and how to say it? 
Rebkah Atnafou, an expert in the field of public health, will empower mentors by answering the questions above and providing guidance on this tricky topic.
