- Enhance understanding of Rutgers’ gender transformative approach by applying GTA principles to CSE
- Turn the theoretical interpretation of the GTA into tangible comprehensive sexuality education practice and programmes
- Inspire individuals and organisations to adopt a GTA by offering accessible programmes, tools & ideas drawing from examples within & outside of CSE programming
