Building Community Support for CSE



Projet Jeune Leader developed “CSE We Can Count On” to share strategies and practical tools for how to build and harness community support for in-school comprehensive sexuality education. The strategies and actions we share through the publication and its associated practical resources help us build lasting, trusting relationships with students, parents, teachers, and school officials at the community level. Importantly, they also prevent and address misconceptions and misunderstandings about CSE within our partner communities.

Strategy 1: Empower the Messengers

Teachers and educators are not only deliverers of CSE – they are also the main messengers that convey its purpose and content. That is why it is important to intentionally recruit those who will serve as CSE brand messengers. Those selected should then be equipped with the tools to showcase their work and trained, supervised, and supported to be able to effectively spread new ways of thinking about CSE. .PNG
