Organising a summer school

On this page you find all available materials to organise a summer school at your own university.

These materials consist of a two-week schedule, exercises and other materials, PPT's etc. for the lessons and general tips for organising this event.

The summer school gives students the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the subject of relationships, intimacy, and sexuality and is specifically designed for students studying social work or pedagogical sciences.The program is perfectly suited for students who have already completed a work placement in youth care institution (residential youth care, foster care supervisor).
