Programs & Implementation Materials


From 2015 – 2020, Re:MIX was delivered to Texas in-school adolescents (13–17 years old) and young parents (18–24 years old). Funded by the Office of Population Affairs, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Re:MIX provided participants with opportunities to learn and practice the crucial skills teens need to make responsible, healthy, and safe life decisions to lead healthy lives.

 

Re:MIX is a comprehensive, inclusive health education program that includes age-appropriate, medically accurate information on a broad set of topics related to human development, healthy relationships, gender, decision making, contraception, and infection prevention. Re:MIX partners with young parents as Peer Educators to co-teach Re:MIX curriculum sessions alongside professional health educators. In addition to facilitating the Re:MIX curriculum, the Peer Educators spend time participating in professional development activities and projects to continue to grow their professional and leadership skills.

The Gender Matters project (also known as Gen.M) is an innovative, science-based intervention that incorporates cutting-edge research on gender-based attitudes and behaviors to prevent teenage pregnancy.

 

From 2010 to 2015, Gender Matters underwent a rigorous study funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Adolescent Health. Led by EngenderHealth and supported by SafePlace, a local domestic violence prevention organization, the study intervention targeted youth ages 14 to 16 who participated in the Travis County Summer Youth Employment Program. Since the initial study period, Gen.M has been field tested with a variety of populations in a range of settings, to understand its effectiveness with groups outside the initial study. Gen.M has been positively received by providers and youth who have participated in the program and continues to be a highly sought after curriculum.
