Sexual Health Workshop Facilitator @ Get To The Pointe!

October 21, 2018 @ 12:00 AM

Get To The Pointe! is an alternative sexual health education program that works with high school students in the South-West of Montreal. Our work focuses on providing students with accurate information regarding sexuality and sexual health, creating safer spaces for students to openly discuss issues relevant to their lives, and to provide opportunities for students to further explore sexual health content through art and media-based projects. Our work with students is based on the principles of harm-reduction, anti-oppression, and non-judgement, and we recognize the importance of relationships and community building in the work we do.

Position details:

The Workshop Facilitator will be responsible for facilitating a workshop series with two separate high school classes. This includes facilitating 8 sexual health content workshops, and leading 12 workshops guiding students in the creation of art and media-based projects focused on sexual health. Workshops will be facilitated in English.
