What supplies do I need?
Our workshops require:
- a minimum of 80 minutes to run a full workshop,
- access to a White Board/Chalk Board,
- space where desks/tables can all be moved to the side (no science labs, etc. please) to allow ample space for students to create a circle with their chairs and engage in our interactive activities.
Is supervision required?
Yes. We ask that a teacher or counselor be present during the workshop, as per School Board policy. Youth Educators are trained in classroom management and teachers are there to support the Youth Educators if and when support is needed.
The Youth Educators will report to the main office a full 10 minutes prior to your scheduled workshop(s) and will await escort to the respective room(s), unless otherwise requested/arranged.
Is there a cost for the workshop?
The short answer is no. In previous years BLUSH has had a cost and we have taken sometime to reconsider this and we have reassessed the cost placed on schools. We at BLUSH want to provide our much needed service of Peer Led and Facilitated Sexual Health education with as little barrier and as much access as possible.
That being said we at BLUSH want to thank all that have supported us over the years and for those that will openly access our services in the years to come.
