About Loving For Life Aotearoa New Zealand

“For sexuality is an enrichment of the whole person – body, emotions and soul – and it manifests its inmost meaning in leading the person to the gift of self in love.”
(Familiaris consortio 37)

Our programmes encourage rangatahi to see themselves and others not just as physical beings, but as integrated sexual persons, incorporating the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical aspects of their nature.

We provide current, researched-based material delivered by accredited facilitators who take part in ongoing professional development. Material of a scientific or medical nature is reviewed by our Medical Advisory Board, and all programmes are bicultural and meet NZ curriculum standards. We provide facilitated programmes, eCourses, Professional Development, NCEA Assessments and other resources to support parents, educators and schools. All material is designed to meet students appropriately at their different age levels.
