YOLO, an educational tool
The memory game YOLO (You only live once) enhances health, safety and well-being of youngsters during the turbulent phase of life on the eve of adolescence.
YOLO is an effective tool for teachers to provide comprehensive sexual and reproductive health education in an open-minded and joyful atmosphere, leading to a respectful handling of each other’s values and standards.
It encourages students to take responsibility for themselves, their partners and the next generation.
The YOLO illustrations (30 double items) give rise to questions, discussion and informative talks about physical, psychological, emotional and social items during puberty. The game can be used in lessons Biology and Social Studies or Human Rights.
RAG HPHC offers you the game for € 100 to provide a school in your community.
For three sets and including postage (regular mail, track&trace, worldwide) we will charge you: € 117.

The United Nations stated already ten years ago that in many communities the young become sexually active at an ever younger age and simultaneously marry later in life. In a rapidly changing world a legion of 1.2 billion teenagers on their way to adulthood therefore is exposed to growing risks in the area of sexual health. The UN urged, and still urges, better sexual guidance, before the youngsters become sexually active.
The 2015 UNESCO report gives us clear evidence that comprehensive sexuality education has a positive impact on sexual and reproductive health, notably contributing towards reducing sexually transmitted infections, HIV and unintended pregnancy. Evidence has confirmed that sexuality education does not hasten sexual activity but on the contrary can delay sexual debut and also has a positive impact on safer sexual behaviors, including condom use.
