Foróige’s Relationships and Sexuality Programme: Relationships Explored and Life Uncovered (REAL U) REFRESHER Training

Relationships Explored and Life Uncovered (REAL U)

REAL U (Relationships Explored and Life Uncovered) is a personal development and sex education programme aimed at equipping young people with the skills, knowledge and confidence to develop healthy relationships and delay the onset of early sexual activity.

This half-day training is for those who have completed the REAL U Programme facilitator training, particularly those who completed their training prior to 2015. Training includes updates to the current manual, changes to policy & legislation, best practice in relationship and sexuality education as well as additional resources. This training will involve experiential learning where facilitators will be able to reflect on their delivery of the REAL U programme to date and will incorporate core elements of reflective practice, peer learning, preparation for delivery and demonstration of skills in facilitating RSE topics.

About Foróige:

Foróige is the leading youth development organisation in Ireland and we have been working with young people since 1952! We empower young people to develop their own abilities and attributes, to think for themselves, to make things happen and to contribute to their community and society. As a result, they develop increased self-confidence, self-reliance, resilience and a greater capacity to take charge of their lives. It is what happy, thriving societies need. Our purpose is to enable young people to involve themselves consciously and actively in their development and in the development of society.

We work with almost 60,000 young people aged 10-24 years each year through volunteer-led clubs and staff-led youth projects. Foróige currently operates in 26 counties in Ireland, with over 600 Foróige Clubs, 150 youth projects, the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programme, the Foróige NFTE Youth Entrepreneurship programme, our Youth Citizenship and Youth Leadership programmes!

Targeted services such as Garda Youth Diversion Projects, Teen Parent Support Programmes and Neighbourhood Youth Projects, help young people to deal with issues associated with poverty, marginalisation and social exclusion, underachievement at school, early school leaving, youth crime, substance abuse and family difficulties in a safe friendly environment.
