Comprehensive Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention

The Comprehensive Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (CAPP) program’s main goal is to connect young people to sexual and reproductive healthcare. This is done mainly through providing education in schools and the community. The program uses an Evidenced Based Intervention that has been federally evaluated and has proven to reduce rates of unintended teen pregnancy, reduce risky behaviors, increase condom use, and show that youth are more active in their communities. This intervention is called the Teen Outreach Program and is implemented over 9 months and focuses on healthy relationship building, sexual health, and has a heavy community service-learning component. Another goal is to increase parent-child communication through educating parents and young people on communication skills to increase the likelihood of them having conversations surrounding sexual health and healthy relationships.
