Kids growing up in today’s digital world have very different experiences than those from previous generations. We are currently in the midst of a seismic social experiment. Never before have kids been immersed in an online world (Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, apps, gaming and various other platforms) where they are bombarded with hypersexualised images, adult themed video games and free online hardcore porn. As access to technology increases, young people are constantly internalising messages which can confuse their understanding of healthy relationships, shaping their attitudes, behaviours, expectations, brain and emotional development. The “Internet of Things” changed everything, but with technology at our fingertips, the doorway for exploitive messages swings wide to our young people.

IQ PROGRAMS are a whole-school educational package designed to equip kids & youth to confidently navigate hypersexualised culture and other 21st century challenges. COMPASS IQ and AGENCY IQ are signature programs within the IQ package, designed to safeguard kids and youth in the online and physical environments. GROWTH IQ and SUSTAIN IQ focus on personal development, relationships and holistic sexuality education – foundational skills essential for personal and relational wellbeing.
