California's Education Code requires that teachers who provide sexual health education must be trained and use curriculum that meets the state's latest education code. Health Connected offers open-enrollment trainings specifically designed to provide teachers and education professionals with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to be exceptional health educators. All five of our original curricula are aligned with the 2016 California Healthy Youth Act.
Our comprehensive, interactive trainings review the activities in the curricula, provide additional background information on key topics - such as best practices in the reproductive health field, adolescent development, reproductive health rights of minors, and contraceptive technology - and incorporate practice and teach-backs.
