PROJECT W.O.R.T.H.

Building Healthy Relationships

Tender Care’s Sexual Risk Avoidance program, “Project W.O.R.T.H.” (When Our Relationships Take Hold)  is a dynamic, interactive, 4-day lesson plan that offers essential information for students to make healthy choices in their relationships. This practical and affirming program addresses sexual pressures currently confronting our young people and is the ideal compliment to standard health and family classes.

Project W.O.R.T.H. and supplemental lessons are based on objective, medically accurate research. With respect for individual’s choice, our trained educators help students frame their future goals with informed decisions and optimal health. We recognize the value of input from parents, so consequently, daily home assignments provide the ideal opportunity for positive discussion between parents and their children.

Teacher Feedback:

“Every year I look forward to Project WORTH for various reasons.  One of the most important is tackling the topic of healthy relationships which is a real-life issue.  Also, young people this age are very interested in friends and dating relationships.  Lastly,  the program emphasizes the importance of healthy relationships by bringing in speakers and addressing issues that they may never experience in a school setting.” – Middle School Teacher

“The W.O.R.T.H. lesson material integrated perfectly with my lessons on hazards to healthy development and romantic relationships in adolescence. I so greatly appreciate the support from the TC SRA program and their commitment to educating young people to these hazards. I look forward to collaborating on these lessons in the future.” – High School Health Teacher
