Pure Freedom is a sexual risk avoidance & relationship education program based on the community saturation model. The key component of this program is a three-day workshop offered to 6th, 7th, 8th, and high school audiences. The Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) educational model is a national movement to encourage teens to wait for sex and stands on the truths that delaying sex until marriage provides men and women with the greatest chance at optimal physical health, successful relationships, and socioeconomic stability. Pure Freedom utilizes this model to help students understand what real love is, how to create boundaries that protect them and their peers, how to identify abuse, how the human body works, how STDs spread, and ultimately, how beyond-valuable they are.
Pure Freedom’s educators include Amy Posterick, Michaella Peck, Larissa Sullivan, and Jackson Page. As certified Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialists through Ascend’s Sexual Risk Avoidance program and curriculum, they are passionate about speaking truth into the lives of students, helping them to better understand their bodies and the implications of sex in an age-appropriate way.
We have received positive reviews from both students and teachers, telling us that the messaging from Pure Freedom including how to build healthy relationships, planning for the future, goal setting, STI information, and sexual risk avoidance are all very necessary to our growing teens and young adults.
Because of the support of our Lifeline Pregnancy Help Clinic donors, Pure Freedom is offered free of charge to middle and high schools in 15 counties across Northeast Missouri. Offering this service at no cost ensures that thousands of teens continue to hear this life-changing message of hope. If you are interested in supporting these efforts, consider donating today.
