Open Call for participants — Let’s talk! Training on Sexual Health, Gender, and Human Rights education

Have you ever faced a taboo? Or did you ever want to talk about what sex is, its social consequences or how to speak without feeling guilty or embarrassed? Wondered if and how this topic is tackled in youth work?

Even if you are an experienced youth worker and young leader, you may lack the knowledge, tools and resources to tackle more sensitive (taboo) topics and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) talks. How do you address the issue of consent in a group of young people? Do you have an understanding of how gender roles or other cultural norms play a role in the dynamics of the groups? Do you know which tools to use?

The Youth Peace Ambassadors Network (YPAN) in cooperation with Libre-pensadores de la Sierra de Madrid (LPS) invites you to discover tools that will guide you towards a more inclusive society.. That is why we created:
