"Before doing these classes, I felt like I could talk to my mom about some stuff, but I didn't really want to, but now I WILL go to my mom about all of this stuff!"
"We had a class in the 5th grade, after we had The Talk classes and it was just an older movie with songs. It was not real informing and left you completely clueless."
"It's less embarrassing than just listening to your parents by yourself because you have a group of friends there."

The Talk Institute is located in the Palm Springs, California area and services Riverside, Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Imperial, and San Bernardino Counties in Southern California. A weekend option may be available in other areas. Please inquire about details and fees.
The Talk Institute is happy to offer live, online Zoom, and blended (some live/some online during) courses at this time. The course organizer will be in charge of deciding which program suits the groups’ needs best. Any in person classes will be asked to meet outdoors if possible. Instructor will need to access a TV or have adequate access to present using a screen and projector. Families should wear masks and social distance when in attendance in line with the CDCs recommended guidelines. Participants will be asked to sign COVID waivers so neither the host and/or The Talk Institute and its representatives are liable for possible infection. Hand sanitizer and temperature checks may also be implemented as needed. If CDC guidelines change and further restrictions occur limiting gatherings after scheduling the program we will move to online live zoom sessions versus postponing. My schedule will not allow for postponements at this time. If you have any further questions, just ask.
