Optimal Health Education Program
RealOptions is using a public health model that focuses on Sexual Risk Avoidance as their approach to addressing behaviors. According to the World Health Organization, health is defined as a "state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." The Sexual Risk Avoidance approach is extensively researched and scientifically proven. It encourages avoiding risk behaviors and abstaining from all associated risks to achieve optimal sexual health. The RealOptions executive team have all been certified in SRA education. This specific curriculum makes the messaging engaging and focuses on a holistic approach to these topics by expanding into related subjects such as knowing oneself, goal casting, and what it takes to build healthy relationships.
Our program operationalizes information in a sex-positive manner and teaches students how to holistically achieve healthy decision and behavior through concrete skill-based activities based on social science and research. These appeal to the teen brain. We stay in the human space; all hearts need to be supported and treated well. Every student desires connection, respect, and healthy relationships. Many students come from broken families and homes and have no one to present something different including how to avoid poverty.
This teaching goes beyond identifying components of sexual health: it uses age-appropriate methods to teach how to protect, respect, and achieve healthy connection. With real life skills and life mapping, students learn how to achieve a risk-free status of optimal health. Our goal is for students to love well, trust, connect, be vulnerable, and be safe. It is transformational, not just informational. This is so compelling that we would love the opportunity for you to see it. Let us augment your current presentation. We would love the opportunity to teach the life skills that empower students to take action with the awareness and education they have received.
