Millennium Fellowship Project: Project ISE
Our project, Project ISE, which stands for Inclusive Sex Education, is focused on advocating for and changing the stigma around inclusive sexual education in Kansas high schools. We aim to benefit SDG #4: Quality Education by supporting local programs that provide sex education beyond the norms of abstinence and heterosexual relationships, and eventually have inclusive sex education consistently taught in every Topeka school.
