Heritage Keepers

What is Heritage Keepers?

Heritage Keepers Abstinence Education is a classroom-based curriculum that teaches students the benefits of practicing sexual abstinence and the risks that can be associated with sexual activity outside of marriage. Students learn resistance skills and tactics to help them practice abstinence and build relationships without having sex. The program also provides information about male and female reproductive systems, as well as sexually transmitted diseases.

Children need the knowledge, attitudes and skills to be able to resist the sexual pressures from media, peers, etc. The instruction is based upon medical, science and social science evidence, and leads to decisions that are biblically aligned.

Why Is This Important?

Research demonstrates that the three most powerful influences affecting a child’s decision on sexual activity are parents, the church, and school. Yet parents and the church tell us they feel ill-equipped to guide their children on human sexuality. If faith parents and the church are not providing the instruction to this sensitive issue how are our children going to get a healthy biblically aligned message?

There is hope. In the public school setting, Heritage Keepers has been tested and proven to reduce youth sexual activity by 67%. All children need the knowledge, attitudes and skills to be able to resist the sexual pressures from media, peers, etc. The instruction is based upon medical, science and social science evidence, and leads to decisions that are biblically aligned.
