Part of the LightHouse BEST (Building Excellence with Skills Training) Series for middle school and high school youth

Let’s Talk is an exciting new comprehensive science-based educational workshop, designed specifically for high school students who are blind or have low vision. Let’s Talk workshops provide a safe space for students to come together and talk about their experiences while they learn and acquire skills that will help them navigate all types of interpersonal relationships.

Who: Students that are blind or have low vision and are attending high school.
When: Saturday, September 17 from 3:15 to 4:30 p.m.
Where: The new LightHouse Building, 1155 Market St., 10th Floor, San Francisco, 94103
Cost: FREE
Waiver: Each participant must fill out and submit a LightHouse Youth Program Application if they have not done so already.

Let’s Talk will focus on topics related to gender, sexuality, reproductive health, navigating social challenges, developing friendships, dating and so much more. By providing youth with accurate, non-judgmental information, they can learn to make healthier decisions and choices for themselves. Our first workshop will focus on activities that help youth identify and establish healthy boundaries. Subsequent workshops will be created based on topics the class participants themselves would like to focus on.
