In response to the high rate of unplanned teenage pregnancy in Central & Regional Victoria, The Gianna Centre offers a dynamic and informative series of secondary school workshops entitled Choices Decisions Outcomes (CDO).
CDO is a relationship education program for students in years 7, 8, 9 & 10 and focuses on the development of healthy strategies and decision-making skills for adolescents. Age appropriate small group activities encourage young people to develop their knowledge and make informed decisions.
The program explores:
- Building self esteem
- Developing your own values
- Formulating goals
- Making decisions
- Looking at the consequences of our behaviour and the choices we make
- Enhancing communication and strengthening relationships
- Understanding development and anatomy
- Sexually transmitted infections
- The impact of pornography
- Understanding social and peer pressure.
Choices Decision Outcomes has been delivered to more than 100,000 students throughout Australia over the last 14 years. It has been externally evaluated and found to have a significantly positive impact on many areas of knowledge, strategies, and relationship perception amongst students.
The Gianna Centre is an accredited presenter of the program (fees apply), which is on offer to Government, Private, Christian and Catholic schools throughout Central Victoria. 98% of students who have participated in the CDO program through The Gianna Centre have cited the program as having had a positive impact on their life.
