Healthy child development doesn't stop in the early years. Kids need factual, age-appropriate information to help them navigate through adolescence.

Beech Brook’s Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) Programming is designed to help youths ages 10-18 understand the emotional, social and physical changes that are occuring in their lives. The goal of the program is to educate, inform, empower and motivate these young people to take control of their future by making healthy and responsible choices now and in the years to come.

CSE facilitators are trauma-informed and highly trained in several evidence-based, age-appropriate and medically accurate sexual health curricula. Beech Brook offers programming throughout several school districts and community sites within Cuyahoga County.

Currently, Beech Brook partners with the Cuyahoga County Board of Health and the Family and Children First Council to provide programming free of charge through federal, state and county funding. In addition, we provide fee-for-service programming tailored to fit the needs of other school and community groups.

Our Comprehensive Sex Education Programming provides education on:

  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Birth control methods
  • Healthy relationships
  • Consent
  • LGBTQ matters
  • Abstinence
  • Puberty
  • Reproduction
  • Refusal skills & delay tactics
  • Body safety

The Comprehensive Sex Education Department also works with Pre-K and Kindergarten students and parents to teach young children about personal body safety to help prevent sexual abuse.
