Abstinence Education and Youth Development Services (AEYD):

Funded by the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services, this project aims to reduce adolescent sexual activity, pregnancies, births, repeat births, and sexually transmitted diseases and infections; and increase the use of abstinence education as the best health message for adolescents by initiating school-based, positive youth development activities. Formerly our Second Chance Program, the target population for this program is up to 250 youth, ages 10 – 20 years old, who live in geographic locations with high teen pregnancy and birth rates, live in economically disadvantaged communities, or are involved with the juvenile court. Using a system of care approach, our culturally-adapted program provides a comprehensive array of services that include: 1) Prevention Education incorporating evidence-based abstinence education and relationship skills training; 2) Parent Education Outreach; 3) Community Outreach; and 4) Referral Services.  Youth participate in supervised hands-on, interactive activities that help them develop skills, knowledge, and attitudes that are necessary in reducing/preventing teen pregnancies, repeat births and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Competitive Abstinence Education (CAE):

Funded by the Administration for Children and Families, this project aims to reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections by providing medically accurate abstinence education as defined by the Social Security Act.  A primary outcome is to prevent and delay the initiation of sexual activity by providing abstinence education to address the high rates of teen pregnancy among adolescents who are most likely to bear children out-of-wedlock. The target population for this program is up to 300 middle and high school youth in Calhoun County, Georgia.  This project uses a positive youth development approach to build skills and capacities that contribute to the healthy, positive and productive functioning of youth including trauma-informed care to address the social and emotional needs of youth.  Youth will receive up to 15 hours of abstinence education and healthy relationship skills services. Key  project activities include: 1) 8-hours of Abstinence Education; 2) 7-hours of Supportive Youth Development Training activities like healthy relationship skills training and domestic violence prevention; 3) Parent Information Sessions; 4) Case Management services that includes referral and follow-up; and 5) a Youth Leadership Council to engage youth in leadership skills training and service learning activities.

Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program (TPP):

Funded by the Office of Adolescent Health, the goal of this project aims to reduce teen pregnancy and existing disparities by replicating evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention model programs in at least three settings among populations at greatest need. Working with school and community-based organizations, our project utilizes multiple evidence-based program models to serve a minimum of 1,000 youth annually in middle school, in high school and in the community. Similar to the collective impact model, our program’s approach incorporates multiple community mobilization strategies and guides the community and youth in addressing teen pregnancy prevention efforts. Project activities include 1) Evidence-Based Curricula Training; 2) Supportive youth development activities; 3) Community Outreach and Mobilization; 4) Parent Information Sessions through our Family Café; and 5) Youth Leadership Councils to engage youth in other relevant skills building and leadership activities. Project staff also work strongly with community stakeholders to build capacity for sustaining teen pregnancy prevention efforts.
