Aaron Huey of Firemountain Residential Treatment Center and the amazing people at Y.E.S., Your Empowered Sexuality talk about the current state of Sex Ed, rape culture, Consent Education and how to talk to your kids about sex.

Rebecca is a co-founder and workshop leader for Your Empowered Sexuality. She was inspired to pursue sexuality work through YES after realizing the lack of current and inclusive sex-ed she and her peers had received when they were in high-school. She has facilitated workshops for students of all ages, from pre-k into late adulthood, which covered topics such as “Body Parts & Boundaries,” “How to talk to your teens about sex,” “Diversity and Identity,” and a variety of consent workshops. Rebecca has been quoted in Vice as well as other local and national publications on her work with YES and her advice regarding coercion, consent and sexuality. 

Isy Abraham-Raveson, one of the co-founders of YES!, is a Philadelphia preschool teacher and sexuality educator.  She is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in sexuality education at Widener University. In addition to her work with YES!, she facilitates trainings for parents on how to talk to their children about sexuality at a variety of locations, including the Trans Health Conference and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Recently, she facilitated a workshop about body image and thin privilege at Haverford College.  She has been quoted in Teen Vogue as an expert on consent and her workshops for Kindergarteners have been featured in national publications.  For Isy, sexuality education is social justice; she does this work because every child has the right to grow up with respect, bodily autonomy, high self-esteem, and accurate information.
