Wavemakers in partnership with Focus on the Family provide the solution in addressing pressing issues regarding youth sexuality.
No Apologies is a character-based abstinence curriculum that helps young people make wise choices regarding high-risk behavior, including sexual involvement before marriage. The curriculum deals with the value of the individual, marriage, and the family and the importance of keeping ourselves pure for our future spouse.
The objectives of the No Apologies curriculum are to help participants:
- Understand the value of character and abstinence leading to healthy behavior
- Identify clearly the consequences associated with premarital sexual activity
- Recognize the relationship between love + sex and the benefits of saving sex for marriage
- Practice skills necessary to achieve the goal of abstinence from premarital sexual involvement
At the end of the workshop, participants are challenged to sign a pledge card saying they choose to wait and save sex for marriage. They are asked to defy the popular culture by holding on to their virginity with pride, and at the day of their wedding, to proudly present the signed pledge card to their spouse, saying “I waited for you.”
