COPA Hosts Spring ’20 Puberty Classes for Pre-Teens

One Class for Boys and One for Girls

Get past awkward and join with your pre-teen and others to talk about puberty!

SUNDAY, April 19, 2020

Recommended for ages 10-12 with a parent or trusted adult.

Great Conversations Puberty Classes for girls and boys returns to Bend this Spring in a one-day-only format, with acclaimed speakers Julie Metzger, RN, MN and Gregg Smallidge, educator.

The one-day-only classes (one for boys and one for girls) will be held Sunday, April 19th at the comfortable Riverhouse Convention Center in Bend. Each class is in a separate room.


COPA brings this popular event to the community for an eighth year. Teens learn to be comfortable with the natural changes in their lives, and the class fosters healthy discussions with parents about puberty. Open up a healthy conversation with your pre-teen, discussing important topics you may have been reluctant to talk about.
