Youth Audiences Workshops
Basic (60 minutes): ThembiAnaiya can provide a basic one-hour youth/teen workshop on a specific topic or issue common to most young adults, at a $197 flat rate. Topics include: Anatomy, The Menstrual Cycle, Sexually Transmitted Infections, Pregnancy & Contraceptives, Condom Basics, Understanding Consent, Understanding Sexual Health, Sexual Values, Sexual & Gender Diversity, Sexuality in Society, and Healthy Relationships.
Advanced (75-90 minute): For a more unique experience, ThembiAnaiya can create a specialty workshop (e.g. slumber party, college tour, youth conference, prom/graduation preparation) based on the specific circumstances of your young people. Topics may vary, but are more comprehensive in nature, and include tangible take-aways that participants can continue to learn from. Prices begin at $325 for prep & presentation.
Peer Education Training & Development (High School Ages Only): For groups who have more time with their young people, ThembiAnaiya can organize, train, and help promote your peer sex educator group! Peer sex education is a known effective strategy in reducing unwanted pregnancy and STI transmissions among young people; moreover, peer education is a great way for young people to gain invaluable professional development skills while earning service learning credits for college and other post-high school endeavors. Prices begin at $3,000+ cost of supplies for a 10-week process, for up to 15 students.

Parents & Caregivers Workshops
60-75 minutes/ $197 each
Having "The Talk:" Why it Matters, and How to Begin: 2nd only to the media, parents have been consistently cited by young people as their go-to source for sexuality information and guidance. What are we saying (or not saying) that makes a difference? This workshop provides logic and tools for beginning these important conversations, including addressing uncomfortable questions, and resources for being more proactive and prepared.
Puberty 101, or "Why Choking your Kids is NOT the Answer:" While puberty is a major milestone in a young person's life, parents often get the wrong idea about how exactly affects those they have relationships with, particularly as as it relates to sexual behavior. This workshop provides basic facts about puberty, and gives parents strategies for how to help their young people successfully manage this time.
