Talk’s Two-Tiered Model

   We spoke to teens and we spoke to parents.
      We spoke to educators and school administrators.
        We examined the evidence.
           We understood best practices.
             We identified the pitfalls and limitations of existing approaches.

                      Then we built our educational model.

See how the Model works at scale


Master Facilitators work with students’ parents in an after-school setting (virtual classroom option coming soon) to provide the knowledge and support they need to promote healthy decision making in their children.


Near Peer Educators work with students in the classroom to develop the practical knowledge and skills they need to make informed, responsible choices.


Primary Objectives:

  • Foster an understanding of what it means to be a responsible, sexually healthy person, emotionally and physically.
  • Empower students to protect their sexual health.
  • Develop the skills necessary for identifying, cultivating, and maintaining healthy relationships.


Our Near Peer Educators:

  • Provide medically-accurate, scientifically-based information that supports teens’ informed decision making.
  • Help students connect to their own personal beliefs and values, examine, question, and challenge peer and cultural norms, and encourage teens to engage their parents.
  • Help students develop the skills they need to identify and access resources and support – and to avoid unintended pregnancy and STIs.
