The Teen STAR Courses' Content

Courses are based on the five aspects of human personality and sexuality, namely physiological, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual. 

They lead teenagers to learn about their own body (fertility awareness) and that of the opposite sex. And to think about who they truly are and what they want in life, to know how they manage their relationships, to improve the way they make their decisions and to act accordingly…

A Teen STAR Course is not a quick fix.

The teenager is given time to think and to reach his/her own conclusions which leads to maturity.

It is not about learning, it is about understanding of oneself and life in general.

How Does it Work?

                

  • Courses are delivered in 16 to 20 workshops over one whole academic year, free of charge;

  • Groups are formed by gender and age (13-14, 15-18…) with between 4 and 12 volunteer participants;

  • Boys’ groups are led by male Teen STAR UK tutors and girls’ groups by female ones;

  • Courses are led by trained Teen STAR UK tutors using the Socratic Method; workshops are interactive, using role-playing, games etc.;

  • Teen STAR UK tutors work on an entirely voluntary basis;

  • Parents' cooperation, before and during each Course, is encouraged;

  • Parental consent for attendance at a Course is required for minors; and

  • All Teen STAR UK-accredited tutors running Courses have attended a 5-day Training Course, are DBS-checked, have received Safeguarding Training and comply with the Teen STAR UK Safeguarding Policy. 

We would be very pleased to come and make a presentation to you.

"I saw my son blossoming and getting more and more self-confident about who he is."

William, father of John

“I can now speak so easily about these topics with my children since they attended a Teen STAR Course!"

Ann, mother of Isabel and Mark

“Meeting my group of girls weekly is a real pleasure. It is a privilege to listen to their dreams, thoughts, questions, hopes and desires, to be able to lead them in their reflections, and to see them mature all along the school year. We laugh a lot!”

Sophie, Teen STAR Tutor
