Dating 101 is an educational programme delivered in educational institutions from primary schools to university, with the main aim of increasing awareness and knowledge about dating, sexuality, and relationships. Dating 101 is targeted at children, youth, parents and educators at schools and institutions; both governmental and private.
The programme has been running since 2013 and was built by a lead expert in Malta who is both a warranted teacher and warranted sex and relationship counsellor. The Dating 101 Programme involves a series of different workshops and seminars which are interactive and informative. These workshops are age appropriate and focus on discussions and teachings around trust, boundaries, safety, diversity, respect, and body image, among other topics. The same topics are discussed with the children, their parents and their educators, as research suggests that a holistic and complete sexuality awareness training should involve all stakeholders.
