prevention Initiatives

Educated, informed and in control.


Options is committed to investing in youth before difficult circumstances arise through mentorship, personal goal setting, and sexual education workshops.

We believe in empowering youth to pursue self respect and personal integrity. The past does not need to define the future. There is hope and a way through every circumstance.

We long to equip young women with value, self -worth and dignity; in a society which glamorizes a media that does quite the opposite.

Treasure Hunting: Learning to value yourself and others

This program is discussion based and focuses on learning to recognize and value our individual self-worth, and from this foundation to explore healthy relationship formation with parents, peers, and others.

Topics include:

  • "Get to know one another" night
  • Personal self-worth
  • Goal setting and decision making
  • Healthy vs. unhealthy relationships
  • Caring for your sexual health

Options can facilitate the course for your group in French or English, OR let us know you and some friends are interested and we’ll get a class started.
