For many years, the Center for Urban Youth Development at Eastern University hosted an exciting conference for the purpose of enlightening middle school and high school students from Philadelphia and vicinity about topics related to sex. A conference will not be held this year but we are available to bring workshops to locations in the greater Philadelphia area.

Hundreds of youth, youth workers, and parents participated in the last five O, YES! (Our Youth Enlightened about Sex) conferences. The days included interactive seminars, skits, music, games, prizes, entertainment, and food. Free HIV and STD testing were also available. Special youth and adult guests presented the real deal on teens and sex! Their expertise, experience and Christian worldview were incorporated into dynamic workshops.
