Not Just the Tip Toolkit

About the Toolkit

More than ever educators, parents & caregivers, and community organizations need resources and training to be able to confidently provide comprehensive sexuality education to youth. This is why we created the Not Just the Tip Toolkit: a resource that gives you the support you need to strengthen your skills to teach comprehensive sexual health education.

The toolkit includes five modules that allow educators, parents & caregivers, and community organizations to engage in: introspection into their positionality and roles; critical thinking about the field of sexual health education; and skill-building in some neglected areas and approaches to sexual health education.
