About Real Talk Education
“Real Talk Education was launched in 2020 as an answer to hundreds of requests from schools over the last ten years for in-depth resources on the topics of personal wellbeing, relationships and sexuality."
Real Talk Education is an initiative of Real Talk International Ltd. which is a not-for-profit charity organisation that works extensively throughout Australia and New Zealand. Averaging over 500 live presentations per year Real Talk is a global leader providing values-based presentations on the human person and human sexuality.
Existing for less than a decade, Real Talk has grown rapidly in part due to the massive need for the education we provide. Modern culture presents young people with many exciting opportunities, but there are also many new challenges, including the hyper-sexualisation of young people, the impact of the digital world, and the pressures on home life. A lack of formation in these areas can result in poor decision making, heartache, and mental illness. Recent global events have made the path of human flourishing even harder.
Despite this gloomy picture, Real Talk has some good news! There is a better way to live. There is a blueprint for positive self-worth and healthy, lasting relationships based on love and respect. Real Talk Education exists to help resource schools with Christian values-based materials that empower young people to live life to the full.
