Relationship Skills

Love Notes is a relationship empowerment program focused on effective communication (saying yes or no) as well as education on safer sex practices. Unplanned pregnancy, single parenting, and troubled relationships are a serious threat to the well-being and futures of many young adults, as well as to their children. Love Notes was created for this vulnerable, high-risk audience. In 13 lessons participants discover, often for the first time, how to make wise choices about partners, sex, relationships, pregnancy, and more.  Love Notes takes an innovative approach to these topics by integrating relationship skills with pregnancy prevention and workforce readiness with practical strategies for motivating change.
