Making Proud Choices for Teenage Pregnancy Prevention
In Austin and Dallas, we partner with Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas to help teens make healthy choices about their sexual and reproductive health. The Making Proud Choices curriculum addresses the prevention of teen pregnancy and of sexually transmitted infections (including HIV). EngenderHealth has adapted this evidence-based curriculum to include additional activities that help teens examine how harmful gender norms and unhealthy relationships can influence their risk of pregnancy. This highly effective curriculum is being taught to eighth- and ninth-grade students enrolled in KIPP Charter Schools. Our work is generously funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
