Resources for Teachers

Comprehensive Sex Ed Curriculum

Comprehensive sex ed ensures that students receive age-appropriate, evidence-based, medically-accurate information about sexual health. Students are given the resources and facts they need to protect themselves and make responsible decisions. We recommend evidence-based curriculum because it has been scientifically validated for effectiveness.

Comprehensive Sex Ed Classes

C-UPHD teaches comprehensive sex ed curriculum in eligible Champaign County schools through our PREP grant. The Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) aims to reduce teen pregnancies and their negative consequences, as well as sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and associated risk behaviors.

PREP programs are:

  1. evidence-based, 
  2. provide education on both abstinence and contraceptive use, and
  3. educate youth on at least three of six adulthood preparation topics.

PREP is targeted toward high-risk populations, such as youth residing in geographic areas with high teen birth rates, adjudicated youth, youth in foster care, minority youth, and pregnant or parenting teens.

Teen Awareness Group (TAG)

  • Planned Parenthood’s Teen Awareness Group (TAG) is a prevention-focused peer education program for high school students that provides training to teens to lead workshops in schools and throughout the community. TAG volunteers educate other teens, parents and community members about making healthy decisions about sex.
  • The sex education and training that TAG provides is comprehensive, age appropriate, and medically accurate. This "youth" to "youth" education gives TAG members the ability to end ignorance, promote tolerance, and improve communication between teens and the important people in their lives.
