EDUCATION FOR YOUTH AND TEENS

For over 25 years, PRC has provided education programing in public and private schools, after-school programs, youth groups, refugee youth programs, youth detention centers, youth conferences, and more. Willing to Wait® curricula offer research-based and medically accurate programs that equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to responsibly manage their relationships and delay sexual activity until marriage. PRC also licenses pregnancy centers and school staff across Michigan to teach Willing to Wait® (W2W) programs.

RESOURCES FOR PARENTS AND TEENS
THE WHOLE SEX TALK®

For over 25 years, PRC of Grand Rapids has been at the forefront of providing families and young people with the information they need to make an informed decision regarding abstinence and reproductive health issues.

Our efforts to reach young people and their families with Godly, relevant, and compelling curriculum has led to better, more open discussions between parents and teens about sex and, ultimately, better choices.

“We are thrilled to have a curriculum to provide the churches and families in our community to help increase the dialog about God’s design for sex. If we can reduce the number of broken hearts and unintended pregnancies we see from youth in churches, sign us up!”
-Debi Harvey, Exec. Director Open Arms PC, California

The Whole Sex Talk® is a Biblically-based, six-session multimedia program that empowers parents to have healthy, ongoing conversations with their kids about love, sex, and relationships.
