SExual Health and Relationships

Elevate’s Health Education and Relationship Training (HEART) Program has been our wholistic  approach to unplanned/crisis pregnancies and to proactively reach youth with the education and tools necessary for sexual integrity, positive decision making, and healthy relationships. We share a positive message through an engaging and relevant research based presentation to promote  self-respect, sexual risk avoidance, healthy dating and relationships, personal boundaries and future goals.  Our HEART message reaches thousands of youth each year within youth organizations and schools such as Apollo, ROCORI, Monticello, Saint Michael Albertville, Princeton, Paynesville, Little Falls, and Sauk Rapids, other schools, youth organizations and numerous churches.
