Online Workshop Series for Alberta K-12 Teachers and Staff

The Centre for Sexuality is a nationally recognized non-profit organization that provides comprehensive sexual health and healthy relationship education in schools, communities, and workplaces. Over the past 49 years we have developed expertise in providing programs and services related to gender identity, sexual orientation, LGBTQ2S+ inclusion, gender equity, sexuality, sexual health, healthy relationships, and consent. Our mandate is to use that expertise to build and deliver meaningful programs that change lives, communities and systems.
