After working with young people for a number of years, David and Katie began to notice a common struggle amongst teens in the area of sex, dating and relationships. With an extensive background in youth work, youth communication and leadership, they began to dream of a programme which could reach teenagers all across Australia at this time of need. The opportunity came to work very closely under the direction of Jonathan and Karen Doyle from Choicez Media, facilitating seminars on these topics across the country. Katie and David now have continued to develop their passion and experience with seminars for high school students, parents and teachers around the topics, which really matter for teenagers. David and Katie continue to provide some of the most impacting and life changing seminars available on these topics today. They are both gifted communicators and have a strong connection with teenagers. They speak with both authority and compassion to an audience who is searching for answers. Their honesty and openness in drawing on their own life experiences, alongside some of the best research available allows them to deliver a truly unique and exceptional presentation. With their personal touch and sensitive approach, teachers will leave encouraged, parents will leave inspired and students will leave empowered to not just survive the teen years but to flourish in what could possibly be the greatest years of their lives. David and Katie are passionate about consistently furthering their understanding and education, working hard to stay up to date with the latest research around the topics that are affecting young people. Your Choicez – Opens discussions, provides answers and changes culture. [/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

Every young person should know what makes a happy, healthy respectful relationship. Every young person should have the opportunity to consider their choices around relationships, dating, sexting, pornography and sex. Our hope is that we can provide an opportunity for every young person to do this.

THE PRICE OF TECHNOLOGY

More and more technology is becoming a part of our lives and our culture. It has significantly impacted our homes, our classrooms, and the lives of young people. While the internet has provided many beneficial changes, it has also created some concerns when it comes to the safety of young people.

The latest statistics from online parental control expert’s, Family Zone, showed that:

  • 45% of teens are using unsafe social media.
  • Teenagers are spending close to 3 hours a day on social media sites.
  • 90% of boys and 60% of girls have visited porn sites.
  • 70% of girls between the ages of 15 and 19 receive online harassment and bullying.

The Australian Medical Association says that there’s a strong link between online pornography and adverse sexual and mental outcomes.

Teachers and Parents play a crucial role in helping young people engage with the online space in a positive way. With education and conversation, young people have the ability to make fantastic choices as they engage in the digital space. Our hope is that as we partner with your school community we can open discussions, provide answers and change culture.
