Sexuality Education Summit: How to Create a Comprehensive K-12 Program for Healthy and Equitable Sexual Development That Leads to Student Well-Being and a Thriving Institution

Participants may sign up for each day individually or join us for a two-day program. Day 1 provides a foundational understanding of the principles of child sexual development. You will hear from experts in the field discuss why it is important for schools to embark upon the vital work of providing comprehensive sex education to students in grades K-12. Decision makers, school leaders and first time participants are strongly encouraged to attend Day 1. On Day 2 participants will have the opportunity to delve more deeply into the “how” engaging in learning opportunities with educators, students and administrators “on the ground” who are already engaging in the work. Participants will can from a variety of workshops on specific topic areas to attend throughout the day. In addition to first time attendees, we encourage participants from last year’s summit to join us again for Day 2 to further their learning and deepen their networks of support.





Sexuality is fundamental to who we are as human beings and integral to every child's intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development from the time of birth. However, even in 21st Century education, the great majority of elite, California Independent schools remain 3-7 years behind in teaching even basic knowledge about human anatomy and reproduction. As educators we can turn the tide and truly provide the comprehensive sexuality education that teaches students the critical thinking skills needed to successfully navigate their complicated sexual landscape.

The two-day Sexuality Education Summit will provide a vision and framework as well as teach educators and administrators the skills necessary to create a comprehensive K-12 human sexuality education program.

The Summit will feature presentations by nationally recognized Human Development educators and thought leaders including, Deborah Roffman, author of Talk to Me First: Everything You Need to Know to Become Your Child’s Go-to Person About Sex and Mike Riera, Head of Brentwood School and one of the country’s foremost authorities on understanding children and teenagers.
