Centering Sex Education
Through Ford Foundation
Funds, the Jane Fonda Center is exploring the need to alter current sex education frameworks to intersect more dynamically and meaningfully with the future.
Part of this process is expected to be a re-centering of sex education on the core needs of young people—those that are essential to healthy sexual living now and in the future. In part, this “Centering” sex education means providing youth with information basic to beginning their individual life-long journeys of personal sexual understanding and expression. It also means empowering youth to take on roles that help themselves and their peers travel safe and healthy pathways to sexual adulthood and ones that are unique and personal to their own selves.
To accomplish this futuristic examination, it will be necessary to explore changes in the world today and how that creates new options in the present and new problems or possibilities in the future.
