This paper describes the process of developing an educational game in collaboration with adolescents from Cafezal Village, a community of a slum area of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The objective of this study was to create a space for dialogue concerning sexuality and teenage pregnancy through workshops in operative groups. The game consisted of: (1) 80 question/answer cards; (2) 15 thinking cards and; (3) 15 territory cards showing public places that belong to Cafezal Village. It was found that the process helped the youth in the construction of knowledge through dialogue and understanding the attitudes of each gender. The process described in this article and the material produced can be used as alternatives to create a healthy and interactive environment to work through the issues related to gender and sexuality within the perspective of the Brazilian National Curricular Parameters (PCN) and the demands of the Brazilian Public Health System (SUS).
