The Light Project parents’ evening – Thursday 23rd March
WSCW is hosting The Light Project parents’ evening next week on Thursday 23rd March (7pm start) on Level 2 of the KHCL at Springs.
The Light Project was established in 2017 by a small team of sexual and public health professionals. The project was set up in response to the changing online porn landscape and the absence of any information, support or resources for young people in Aotearoa.
The reality is that porn is now a primary learning tool for many young people in Aotearoa, shaping youth sexual culture in new and diverse ways.
The Light Project provides evidence-based professional development workshops for parents and wider whānau to help equip them with knowledge and confidence to understand and support young people in today’s online world.
Who should attend?
The school parent community and whānau wanting to be equipped to engage in the porn conversation positively and more confidently.
