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 programming 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 educate youth about the emotional, physical and financial risks and responsibilities of sexual activity and parenthood through two (2) age appropriate programs and as guest speakers in the community.

Family Life

 

Family Life is taught to area 4th and 5th graders and covers basic health and safety topics related to puberty, development, abuse, neglect, and hygiene.

Vision of You

 

Vision of You (VOY) is a comprehensive sex education program taught to area 6th through 10th graders.  The goal of VOY is to help youth focus on their goals and values in connection with abstaining from sexual activity and making choices to avoid unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, and unhealthy relationships.
