In September-October 2009 the charitable foundation SALUS, in cooperation with the Directory of Education of the Lviv City Council’s Department of Humanitarian Policies, hosted training seminars on "The Sexual Education of Youth" for workers of educational establishments of Lviv at the Center for Urban History.

At the seminars trainers of the foundation SALUS acquainted representatives of the educational sphere with the original programs of the charitable foundation, which are focused on increasing youth’s awareness of questions related to gender self-identification, sexual health, a healthy and safe lifestyle, avoidance of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases, as well as violence in the environment of youth. Participants had the possibility to join in master classes of training programs called "The World of Girls and Women" and "The World of Boys and Men," which were held in the form of a game.

During the seminar, participants had the opportunity to visit the exposition of the Center for Urban History called "Eros and Sexuality," which was on display in the exposition hall of the center for several months, as well as discussed the content of the exposition in the context of seminar topics.
