SExT School Registration
Ophea is pleased to partner with Shira Taylor, PhD candidate at the University of Toronto to deliver Sex Education by Theatre (SExT), a free sexual health education theatre program for secondary schools across the Greater Toronto Area.
SExT is a youth-driven, culturally inclusive, theatre-based approach that explores sexual health education content. The SExT performance was developed and is performed by youth, and includes a compilation of sketches, songs, raps, dances, and spoken word pieces. This youth-driven approach has created a piece that includes sexual health education topics most relevant to youth, and portrays these ideas in a vibrant and honest performance that makes a meaningful connection with other youth.
The SExT performance allows secondary students to realize that they are not alone when it comes to sex ed — they may have the same questions, ideas, and feelings as other youth across Ontario. By providing real-life experiences to start the conversation on this important topic, this performance supports students to go out and continue to build their own knowledge so they may lead healthy, safe, and happy lives.
The SExT program includes materials to support educators and their students prior to and after the performance.
