Build better, stronger relationships

ReL8 is an abstinence-based education program for teenagers. It is designed to equip them with information and relationship-building skills needed to make educated, factual, and positive choices for their lives – especially in sexual health. The truth is powerful – abstinence is the only 100% effective way to avoid the risks of sex outside of marriage. 

Since 2006, ReL8 has served over 40,000 students in middle schools, high schools, youth groups, and more. The abstinence education program and abstinence curriculum serve over 2,200 students per year in Madison and St. Clair counties.
