Government statistics reveal that Britain has the highest underage teen pregnancy rate in Europe, together with a soaring epidemic of STIs (sexually transmitted infections). These statistics affect the entire community of which Jewish youth is a part. There are no culturally and religiously sensitive services for Jewish communities in England. Due to the stigma attached to sexual health issues within the Jewish community, many feel that they have nowhere to turn. JAT offers that support and understanding, helping to promote positive, healthy relationships within a context that is relevant. JAT's workshops are culturally and religiously sensitive, working with each youth movement to deliver sex and relationships education in an ethos appropriate way. We aim to give young people sufficient information to allow them to make informed decisions as to how they will lead their sex lives. Where required boys and girls are taught in separate groups. The style of the workshops are informal within a youth group setting - using drama, role play, small group work, discussions and quizzes All workshops are age appropriate. Topics covered include: - puberty and body change in both males and females;. - body image, and messages that we give out through our appearances - boundaries in relationships, and negotiating skills - sexual health and HIV, with age apporpriate information using a variety of teaching methods. Using full cost recovery - each workshop costs £300 to deliver.
