Reimagining Sex Education

 

Empowering Youth Through Design

A comprehensive and inclusive sexual health education can improve the lives of youth in America. Educating youth about their sexual health keeps them healthier overall and increases the chance of success in their academic careers and personal relationships, with their ability to make more informed decisions. Contrary to abstinence-only programs, comprehensive sex education empowers youth by helping them form positive relationships with their sexuality, through their ability to learn about all aspects of their sexual health. This project will address the shortcomings of the sexual health education system that are created by legislation and lack of federal funding, through designing inclusive and engaging learning material for youth. By creating an informational deck of cards, the goal is to raise awareness for this human rights issue, educate others on their sexual health, and help youth develop healthy attitudes about their inherent sexuality.
