Project name: A Two-Generation Approach to Teen Pregnancy Prevention

Grant Type: Priority Health Area Implementation

Project Description: CLUES will use a two-generation approach to teen pregnancy prevention by engaging both a “parents as sexuality educators” model, as well as a six-week sexuality education course for Latino adolescents. Our approach provides both parents and teens with the tools and information they need to prevent teen pregnancy in the Latino community, while also aligning itself with the strong value placed on family within Latino culture.

EHDI Grant Activity Outcomes: 1. To improve the sexual health of young people. 2. To reduce the risk factors and increase the protective factors related to teen pregnancy.
