IN·clued Sexual Health Education

IN·clued is an LGBTQ+ centered, comprehensive sexual health curriculum designed by Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and Hawaiian Islands. It's a three-hour curriculum that can be taught all at once or in three, hour-long blocks. GLSEN Washington volunteers have been trained and would love to present to your group, or have students at a GLSEN hosted training.

IN·clued works with sex education adult facilitators, as well as teen peer educators, to:

• Empower LGBTQ+ youth with sexual health knowledge and skills;
• Give LGBTQ+ youth the tools to advocate for their sexual health; and
• Educate health centers directly to provide LGBTQ+ inclusive sexual healthcare. This program uplifts the voices of LGBTQ+ youth and takes a systems change approach to education by providing referrals to appropriate clinical services as well as LGBTQ+ centered sex education.

Currently, IN·clued is one of the only evidence-based sexual health education programs designed specifically to meet the needs of LGBTQ youth. IN·clued is a program that aims to lower teen pregnancy rates and STD rates among LGBTQ+ youth ages 14-19. The program combines LGBTQ+ youth-friendly health services with direct relevant and inclusive sex education — this combination has the outcome of youth seeking health services and getting birth control and testing on a more consistent basis. The program is grounded in the Health Belief Model theory of change and proven sexuality education best practices.
