2017 FYSB Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Grantee Conference

The Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF) Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) held “Strategies for Success: A Holistic Approach to Adolescent Pregnancy” in St. Louis, MS during the final week in June 2017.  National and international Grantees of the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) and Title V State Abstinence Education Program were in attendance.

Joseph Frelot, our Family Café facilitator, prepared and presented a workshop, “The Nuts and Bolts of Family Engagement in a Rural Community.  The workshop included:

  • A Success For Life model – that was used to create the framework and strategy for the SFL Family Café and
  • Practical Tools – created to stimulate desire within parents/caregivers for conversation and reflection regarding the sexual health of their children.

Response to the national workshop was overwhelmingly positive with many grantees leaving the conference with additional tools to engage their communities.
