PREP

The purpose of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention-Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) is to reduce teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, and HIV/AIDS. It is designed to support the implementation of direct services (complete, medically accurate, and age-appropriate using an evidence-based curriculum work with a coalition, and supplemental activities). These services target youth ages 11-18 years old/grades 6 through 12, and in a geographic area with a high demonstrated need, and serve a population of at least 50% or more African-American and/or Hispanic youth (inclusive of multi-racial youth) and their parents/guardians. CPRD serves as the evaluation contractor to assist the federal government, Illinois Department of Human Services, and local service providers learn more about program design, implementation, and outcomes.
