TeenBoundaries is part of Family Lives and aims to prevent sexual bullying, peer on peer sexual exploitation and promotes positive gender relationships by challenging attitudes and promoting tolerance, understanding and cohesion between young people. Our research with young people tells us that SRE (Sex and Relationship Education) is too focused on providing factual information on contraception and STIs (sexually transmitted infections). There is not enough attention on giving young people the skills they need to manage relationships, clarify attitudes and values and maintain boundaries. To date we have provided 7000 young people (11-18 years old) with workshops and further provided individual mentoring, delivered workshops to parents, bespoke workshops for schools on TeenBoundaries themes, and worked with schools to assess their policies around gender and support them establish a team of Peer Mentors. TeenBoundaries was founded and developed by Leonie Hodge.
TeenBoundaries is being externally evaluated by the Institute of Education, (University of London) in May 2013 we will publish the findings once complete. Read more about TeenBoundaries evaluation.
