“I Can Wait” Story line: Olivia, a young teen, is having the worst night of her life. She just found out that her boyfriend is seeing someone else. Olivia thinks back over their relationship and conversations with friends, wondering if it’s because she said "no" to sex. After talking with her older brother, Olivia realizes she's made the right choice for her.

Highlighting pressures to have sex and the value of waiting, this thought-provoking, educational video was developed to complement SHCCC’s award-winning Worth Waiting program (also available for purchase) .

“I Can Wait” can also be used alone by individuals, counselors, teachers, youth group leaders, etc.

Released February 19, 2011- reviews from youth and adults have been extremely positive.
