oh4m means “optimal health for me”
We encourage every student to choose optimal health
and empower them to move toward it.
Trained and knowledgeable volunteers present a medically accurate, fact-based sexual risk avoidance (SRA) program based on the definition of optimal health.
Introduction of basic definitions specifically geared for the youngest middle school students along with discussion on family, puberty, and physical development. Sixth graders are encouraged to take personal responsibility for their actions.
Seventh grade oh4m is about the story of their lives. They will be able to dream of, plan out and eventually live the story of a life based on healthy choices…starting now. Conversely, they will identify things that turn them away from their dreams.
Exploration of their value as a human being emphasizing that they are worth waiting for! Students will understand the importance of making good choices now for their future. They examine ways in which decisions of others impact them.
Sex among HS students poses the threat of pregnancy and STDs and weakens their capacity to have healthy relationships in the future. They will be encouraged to make good choices positively impacting their future.
There are a lot of rumors and misinformation
surrounding sex and abstinence
but we always want you to know the truth
BELIEVE that your teenager can wait…and ENCOURAGE them to wait! This subject is too important to be restricted to a single conversation. Follow us on Facebook (oh4me) for more material and resources that you can use to have “the talk” with your child.
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
We are a part of Portico
oh4m is the sexual risk avoidance education program of Portico. Those at Portico believe that everyone has value and purpose and that the best way to live it out is to get to know individuals through sharing life stories on the front porch…and a portico is a porch. Our stories shape who we are and who we are becoming. oh4m connects with young people empowering them to make life decisions that help their story.
