The Soi Kophai Community filled in the gaps between school lessons and parental talks by offering a sex education course for neighborhood youths.
Community President Wirat Joyjinda opened the Dec. 18 seminar aimed at curbing teenage pregnancies.
The workshop was supported by the Supanimit Foundation, Pattaya Hospital and Big C Supercenter. Community leader Kanthana Pornchai and health workers from Pattaya Hospital were the speakers.
The speakers educated the teens on potential issues and difficulties for the future if they or their girlfriends become pregnant and urged them to partake in recreational activities to distract them in their spare time.
Sports is one of the many things youths can take part in, the speakers said.
The event featured open booths offering healthy beverages and health checks for free. Furthermore, youths were given presents for Christmas.
