There are some pretty silly names out there for what we like to simply call a period. We think that has a little to do with the fact that so many people are embarrassed to talk about these very natural things.

 

But we love to talk about periods!

OUR WORKSHOPS OFFER A RELAXED, ACCEPTING ENVIRONMENT, WHERE EVERYONE CAN CONFIDENTLY ASK  QUESTIONS, AND TALK FREELY ABOUT PERIODS.  

LET US GET YOUR GROUP TALKING IN ONE OF OUR WORKSHOPS.

WE KNOW THERE'S ONE THAT'S JUST RIGHT.

(AND IF NOT, WE'RE HAPPY TO CREATE IT.)

"The best thing for me was that I got to see different kinds of pads and even a tampon. I learned that the boxes have colors and yellow is a good color for me. I didn't know that before."

Many young people lack the basic knowledge they need to manage this normal physical process.

Our workshops offer:

Real talk, among peers, about lived experiences in a forum that respects individuals' backgrounds

Trivia, because big kids love trivia, too! Games are fun and informative and open up a great discussion

A sample of products that enables each individual to determine what is best for them

 

Practical steps to help teens advocate for free products in school and their communities

*All are welcome, regardless of gender identity

*Our workshops are appropriate for classes, clubs, and teams and can be tailored to meet your needs

CORPORATE/CIVIC GROUPS

An opportunity for your team to support community service projects, become better allies, talk openly about period poverty, and make plans for creating an inclusive workspace

Our workshops for business and civic groups can run from formal presentation, to casual lunch-and-learn, and include practical advice employees can use in their own families

We typically offer organizations fun facts about how and why our non-profit got started and how we've helped spotlight "period poverty" in every US community, practical advice for engaging teams in meaningful community service, and ideas for creating in-house campaigns that inspire employees to give back

We are thrilled to collaborate on ways to make workplaces more accepting (hint: adding free period products to the bathrooms is a start)

Quick and easy fundraisers to benefit the local community can be combined with any event

A fun taste of what we teach students - teachers and counselors say they learn a lot!

*All are welcome, regardless of gender identity

*Our workshops are appropriate for large or small groups, and can be tailored to meet your needs
