When traveling to speak or present a class/workshop, in addition to the hourly or per student rate, Michele charges $100/day of travel by car that is farther than 4hrs and a $200/day stipend for meals & hotel costs (alternatively an organiser or student/attendant can provide free room & board for Michele).
SEX AND SEXUALITY CLASSES
Michele is an independent Sex & Sexuality Educator. Their classes are inclusive of queer & gender-diverse people, body-positive, sex-positive, NOT abstinence only, and evidence informed. Michele currently has a class series for teens aged 12-17. They are working on three additional series for children aged 6-11, children aged 3-5, and for adults/parents aged 18+.
Previously, these classes were paid for by students/parents and moving forward, Michele hopes to have the class series for minors completely paid for via private and/or public funding, assuring that our youth are able to get the information that they need regarding, self-worth, safer sex, toxic relationships, puberty, menstrual cycle charting, pregnancy, sex & politics, and consent.
If you have a group of teens that you'd like Michele to come teach sex & sexuality education to, please contact us. Michele prefers to cap the class at 15 students with at least 3 slots tuition free for IBPOC/Queer students (to be paid for by hiring person/organisation). Cost per student is typically $75-$150, depending on length & depth of classes. We can tailor classes to your specific needs.
