AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

The 6th Annual "Let's Talk About Sex Conference" is coming to Augusta.

The Mckie Foundation in conjunction with Augusta University and the Students of Salvation will be hosting this event. The conference is abstinence-based and aims to encourage and inspire youth and young adults to make positive choices through relationship education, refusal-skill coaching, and character education. The Mckie Foundation says that they "understand that sex is a very serious topic and so we handle it Biblically with wisdom while allowing the youth to really enjoy themselves". L.T.A.S. is one of the largest youth and young adult conferences of its kind with over 1,000 abstinence pledges signed.

The event will be April 29th at Augusta University’s Maxwell Theatre from 1 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Pre-registration is $10 for individuals and $8 for groups, but no one will be turned away. Sponsors are available for anyone that cannot afford the registration fees. For more information, you can email yannik@yannikmckie.com or call 1-800-827-3035.
