Streetwise to Sexwise provides an easy to use yet comprehensive model for a basic series on human sexuality for high- risk teens. The lessons are simple, concrete and actively involve group members in the learning process. They extend beyond mere factual information and address attitudes, values, and skills, an approach that experts find is more likely to lead to positive behavior change in young people. In addition, this manual provides background information on teaching sexuality education to high-risk teens, including profiles of the sexual health concerns of four specific high-risk populations. And finally it includes a resource section of books, audio-visuals, and other teaching tools especially appropriate for high-risk youth. Being aware of the potential issues high-risk youth face and being prepared to address them is a critical part of educating around sexual and reproductive health topics.

You can learn more about WISE work nationally here. WISE Iowa works collaboratively with school district administration and staff to develop and implement high quality sex education that is planned, sequential, and part of a comprehensive school health education approach. We know that schools play an essential role in helping students achieve and lead successful, healthy lives.. Additionally, research shows that young people who are prepared to make responsible, informed decisions about their sexual health are more likely to succeed in school, achieve meaningful interpersonal relationships, and envision positive futures for themselves.
