Body Basics And Beyond

Coming to Eugene in Spring 2023

Welcome! I’m Jane Higgins, a certified Body Basics and Beyond puberty and adolescence educator for 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders.

Eugene based Body Basics and Beyond is an after school body confidence puberty and adolescence education program for youth and the adults that raise them.


My role is to provide a safe and brave space for accurate, accessible, and playful puberty education so youth can better understand the physical and emotional changes associated with puberty. This curriculum is primarily designed for youth that are or will be menstruating, and we welcome those that are on a path of self discovery.

Body Basics Eugene emphasizes:

  • Puberty is normal and it happens to everyone

  • Body changes don’t have to be confusing or scary

  • Emotions can be a source of strength and power

  • The importance of a trusting adult/youth relationship

It is my joy to share puberty and adolescence education with your youth! If you are looking for ways to support your adolescent child as they experience puberty, you are in the right place.
