Sexual Health Education (SELF)
Sexual Health Education for Youth & Families
Sexual health is important to the wellbeing of youth throughout their lives. Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota offers a comprehensive sexual health and teen pregnancy prevention program called Seeing and Exploring Life’s Future (SELF).
SELF is for all ages and stages of life to empower youth and those who support them with:
- Knowledge and tools to promote healthy sexuality
- Good decision-making
- Forming positive, caring relationships.
Our services can be tailored for virtually any audience, including students and educators, parents and caregivers, community groups, professionals, clergy and youth leaders:
Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota’s (LSS) SELF team created these sexual health and hygiene social stories with the intention of supporting individuals, their parents, caregivers, and families in necessary sexual health and hygiene practices.
Watch our video showcasing the importance of sexuality education, featuring youth who have participated in Student Movement to Achieve in School & Home (SMASH) programming with the LSS SELF team.
In the video youth talk about the importance of healthy relationships, consent, communication and how SELF’s work provides them with the tools to pursue their goals. You will also hear from LSS SELF team members and other youth workers as they describe the value of accessible, relevant and meaningful sexuality education for everyone.
