Maine’s annual Comprehensive Sexuality Education Conference began as an opportunity to provide sexuality education updates to school nurses and health teachers. Decades later, it has grown into an eagerly anticipated annual event for educators, school nurses, school counselors, and a variety of other youth-serving professionals. Every year we are excited to come together to share new and innovative programming, develop skills and knowledge, and provide resources for delivering positive, inclusive sexual health education.
Join us for Maine’s 2024 Comprehensive Sexuality Education Conference!
THEME AND DESCRIPTION
This year’s CSE Conference, Cultivating Connections: Strengthening Communities Through Sex Ed, uplifts the voices of people working, living, or who have a connection in Maine. In our increasingly connected world, youth may still feel disconnected in many ways. When youth feel connected and know that they matter to their communities, their health outcomes are improved. As educators and youth professionals, we have the opportunity to build the connections, skills, and tools young people need to navigate a changing world. Together we will share our collective wisdom and expertise in how we are cultivating connections and strengthening communities through sex ed.
Here’s a sneak peek of this year’s conference.
Participants will attend an opening panel session, two workshop sessions of their choice, and two roundtable discussions. With more details to come, here is a sample of some of the in-person workshops:
