Over the past couple of months we've been running Agents of YEAH training in lots of cities across lots of states. We've met some amazing young people and learned so much. Sam completed the Agents' training in Melbourne and was kind enough to share his reflections with us. Over the two days of training, Sam and his fellow safe sex champions covered topics like; Sexual Health and STIs, HIV and Stigma and Discrimination. They also learned how to put all this new stuff into action as peer educators at events and workshops. Here's what he had to say about it... Enjoy!
In an exciting turn of events at this year's Groovin the Moo festival, we teamed up with Brooklyn babes Matt and Kim to produce limited edition sexy safe sex posters!
How Sex Education will be incorporated into the Australia Health and Physical Education Curriculum has been causing much debate for some time. That is why you might remember that back in 2012, YEAH, in partnership with the Australian Youth Affairs Council, asked young Australians to share their views on the state of school based sex education though the 'Let's Talk About Sex' national youth survey.

At YEAH we're completely committed to ensuring that young people play a part in all levels of decision making within our organisation (it's even in our name, for Pete's sake). So this year we're starting the National Youth Sexual Health Council (NYSC).
Over the past few months we've trained nearly 100 glorious new sexual health peer educators. Sam did the training in Melbourne and wrote a flipping great blog about it. You should read it!
OK THEY'RE UP!!! Knock yourself out, Bunbury. Tag and share. Sitting in frosty Melbourne looking at the pictures of your pretty, sunny town is making us all a bit sad. xx
