Training and Events:
EyesOpenIowa has been in existence since 1997 and providing teen pregnancy prevention services and comprehensive sexual health education throughout the state. We believe in providing age-appropriate, medically accurate and factual sexuality education for youth. Our goal is to help professionals by increasing their knowledge, skills and comfort level with a variety of
interactive and engaging trainings and workshops. EyesOpenIowa is here to support professionals with evidence-based curriculum or topic based trainings and can customize trainings to best fit your agency or school. EOI staff can customize and develop any training to meet your specific needs. By participating in these educational opportunities, participants will be given the most up-to-date information, feel comfortable with the subject matter and be able to provide the youth they work with accurate and age-appropriate information. A list of already crafted opportunities are listed in our brochure below.
EyesOpenIowa hosts an annual conference focused on learning opportunities for the development of educators, nurses, social workers, and professionals working with youth around sensitive topics. This is the only conference of its kind in the state and among only a few in the Midwest with a sexual health focus for young people. This conference combines engaging sessions and cutting-edge speakers to provide attendees with a wide range of information on the latest trends, medically accurate facts, support, and resources on adolescent reproductive and sexual health as well as the many other non-sexual risk factors affecting young people. EOI’s conference is widely attended and seen as an excellent professional development opportunity for school districts and community organizations.
We want everyone to take part in these opportunities. If you or your organization is in need of financial assistance in order to participate in these trainings~ please call us at 515.276.6788.
