Parents - the content

Parent Information

Parents, we honor the fact that you are the primary health educators of your children. Because of this, we want to be fully transparent with you by informing you about the Pure Freedom program. We are so grateful for the opportunity to speak with your kids and we don’t take it lightly. So as parents, here is what you should know about our program’s content:

What does the Pure Freedom program seek to do?

Pure Freedom is a program developed by Lifeline, located in Kirksville, Missouri. It has 3 components: relationship, sexual abuse prevention, and sexual risk avoidance education. As such, it is based on the Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) educational model, a national movement that encourages teens to wait for sex. At its core, this model stands on the truth that delaying sex until marriage is best for all areas in life. Indeed, doing so provides men and women with the greatest chance at optimal health, successful relationships, and socioeconomic stability.

The program takes the form of a three-day workshop offered to 6th, 7th, 8th, and high school audiences.

What information is covered during the Pure Freedom program?

Some of the topics covered during this three-day long program include:

  • Healthy and unhealthy relationships
  • Facts about sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy
  • Setting healthy boundaries in relationships, both physically and digitally
  • Focusing on future goals and dreams
  • Encouragement for starting over if mistakes have been made
  • Facts about pregnancy and fetal development

This curriculum’s goal is to empower and educate your student in making good decisions for their future. This includes building healthy relationships, staying healthy physically, but also emotionally and mentally.

We know it is your desire to teach your children not only how to be healthy but also how to have a great future. This is why it is our intention to support you in that effort.
