TeenSTAR (Teen Sexuality Teaching in the context of Adult Responsibility) is a curriculum on human sexuality rooted with the teachings of the Catholic Church and the understanding of the human body as expressed in Pope St. John Paull II’s Theology of the Body. TeenSTAR is a sexual education curriculum taught throughout the world designed for persons of preteen to college age. It employs the Billings Method of understanding human fertility patterns, “To teach responsible decision making and communication skills in the area of sexual behavior and enhance teens’ self-understanding and self-esteem.” It was created by Sr. Hanna Claus, an MD and OB/GYN, and is rooted in sound moral, psychological, and physiological principles.

This course will be taught by Sr. Genevéive Gadbois, FM. Participants in this course will learn TeenSTAR’s curriculum and gain certification to educate youth and young adults in both secular and religious contexts.
