Romance Academy: Young People, Sexting and Social Media Resourcing Day


Romance Academy is hosting an Equipping Day ‘Young People, Sexting and Social Media’ on Saturday 25th of March.

Digital platforms and social media offer young people new ways of creating identity and connections, but how much does this positively contribute to the life experiences of young people, and how much of it causes irreversible damage?

Discover the effect social media has on our young people, and exploring the influence & impact that regular exposure to sexually explicit materials has on young people’s values, identity and relationships. The day will also see the launch of a brand new ‘IsItOk?’ sexting resource,developed by Youthscape and acet UK.

Book a place on this day, to be one of the first to get your hands on this cutting edge resource.

Speakers: Rachel Gardner – Youthscape (Romance Academy Founder), Gareth Cheesman – acet UK,  Jemimah Woodbridge – Romance Academy

Saturday 25th of March 

Time: 10am-3.30pm

Venue: Youthscape
