Teen Pregnancy Prevention

The Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) program strives to prevent teen pregnancies and risky behaviors among youth through comprehensive sexual health education that teaches teens, parents, and the community about the emotional, physical and financial risks and responsibilities of sexual activity and parenthood.  The program’s objective is to reduce the number of youth engaging in sexual activity that can lead to teen pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections.  OOY staff offer age appropriate programing from 4th grade to 10th grade as requested by school administrators and community leaders.

Comprehensive sexual health education includes more than just education on the risks and responsibilities of sexual activity and parenthood.   OOY staff also teach about:

  • healthy relationships,
  • sexual assault,
  • sexting and social media,
  • body image and the media;
  • self-esteem, and
  • career and family goals.
