WHAT IS PITTSBURGH ESSENTIAL SPEAKERS?
The REAL TALK video curriculum from Pittsburgh Essential Speakers Empowers, Encourages, & Educates students to desire, value and seek out healthy relationships! REAL TALK is a healthy relationships video series that is accessible whether students are at home, in church or in the classroom. More than 15,000 students have heard our presentations. REAL TALK presenters are certified and trained in Sexual Risk Avoidance relationship education and each video lesson is designed to equip young people with the skills to combat challenges they face in adolescence. Lessons captivate the heart and direct students toward positive, healthy decision-making.
Thanks to a generous grant, we are now offering the REAL TALK video series to faith based organizations at no cost. If you are a leader in a faith based setting, you know that students in middle and high school grades are facing pressures like never before. They come to you with questions about identity, sexuality and boundaries that require answers grounded in facts and timeless truths. You are aware of the significance of being a leader or role model to the students you serve and want to have confidence in the content you share. The 10 REAL TALK presentations address vital questions about identity, relationships and boundaries. The lessons align with your values and beliefs without sounding “preachy” or “judgemental.” And the Small Group Discussion guide ensures a thoughtful and respectful discussion.
