Relate is a curriculum that teaches Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) techniques and tools to develop healthy relationships. Relate uses  primary prevention which is the optimal public health model for avoiding and preventing health issues. This includes a balance of emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual, and social health. We teach primary prevention of risk behavior through modules which focus on goal setting, communication, prevention of disease and healthy relationships. Our Relate curriculum is taught in middle schools, high schools, youth groups, and colleges throughout Whatcom County. Due to the rapidly growing risk in Whatcom County, Relate is also developing a curriculum for our youth on sex trafficking which includes learning about the warning signs. We hope to start implementing this new program in 2020.

Relate both meets and exceed OSPI’s Healthy Youth Act’s requirements as follows:
