Sex Ed Connect

Sex Ed Connect is a web app that connects parents and educators to the resources they need to be able to support shame free sex education in their homes and classrooms. Sex ed connect provides resources, learning modules, activities and more!

Sex Education is a HUMAN RIGHT, yet many of us struggle with navigating every detail of the topic. When it comes time for the dreaded “talk”, where do we even begin? As Parents and Educators how can we de-stigmatize sex education as well as making it understandable? How can we ensure our youth have access to accurate and timely information? 

Comprehensive, shame-free information about our bodies, relationships and sexuality has been positively correlated with decreases in sexual assault, teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection rates!

Sex Ed Connect is an accessible web application that will be available to the public at no cost, with inclusive information about healthy bodies, healthy relationships, puberty, consent, reproduction, contraceptives, harm reduction, gender, and sexual diversity for all ages, developmental abilities and cultures.

Sex Ed Connect will include videos, audio book downloads, print-outs, and activities for folk of all ages, training modules for parents and educators and even sex ed kits sold at cost for both classrooms and family learning settings. There are modules tailored for folk with intellectual disabilities, and/or physical disabilities.

Our goal is $125,000. This amount will allow us to set up a high quality, information rich web app filled with resources on all aspects of sexual health and wellness, all available right at your fingertips! All information will be inclusive (respecting human diversity and moving beyond the commonly used heteronoramtive, cisnormative lens).  The best part? Once up and running it will take very little investment to maintain. This makes for a sustainable project that can benefit folk all over the globe!

 Who Are We?

The Alberta Sex Positive Education Community Centre (ASPECC) is a sex-positive, non-profit organization that was founded by sex-positive individuals with the goal of providing a Safe(r) space to support the public by offering shame-free sex education resources with a focus on consent, sexual empowerment, and sexual diversity. We operate out of pop-up locations across the province, as well as online.

At ASPECC we have been providing individual sex education services, presentations, webinars and even university content since 2015! We vow to bring our inclusive, shame free values to this program as well!

We need your support!
