Sex education - for young people, by young people. Elephant Ed is Australia's leading youth-led sex education provider.
Since 2015, Elephant Ed has been transforming the way sex education is taught across Australia. We are 100% youth-led, and work with schools, universities, teachers, parents and community groups to facilitate interactive, informative and inclusive sex education workshops. After all, sex education is more than just condoms on bananas.
I found the kids so receptive and the session so helpful - it really targeted their misconceptions, allowing them to raise questions that were asked and answered maturely and without judgement.

about the innovation
Sex education - for young people, by young people
We're changing the game in three key ways:
- People - We are a youth-led organisation. Our facilitators are highly-trained, young and relatable. They have a fresh insight into adolescence that young people can truly grasp - they’ve recently been on the journey too.
- Content - We don't shy away from tough topics - we tackle them head-on. Our content is designed to respond to relevant matters and challenges facing young people. We embrace all people, no matter their sexuality, gender or background.
- Delivery - We deliver workshops in an informal and interactive manner. We steer clear of lecture-style presentations and encourage dialogue through facilitating conversation and engaging in thought-provoking and fun activities.
