Natasha Singh, Sexual Literacy Educator
As an educational consultant and sexual literacy educator, Natasha believes that community-wide transformation can happen when parents, schools, and kids have shared language and tools. For these reasons, her approach is multi-pronged and rooted in connecting to various parts of a community: she works with schools to implement curriculum; she trains faculty to navigate conversations about consent and sexual harm prevention; she teaches parents how to scaffold conversations about sexuality so that they can have ongoing conversations with their kids; she teaches students (from 4th-12th grade) a range of topics including sexual ethics, anti-racism, effective communication, healthy friendships/healthy relationships, racial/sexual stereotypes, media/porn literacy, gender literacy, masculinity … plus a whole lot more.
