YOUTH PREGNANCY & PARENTHOOD AWARENESS

Nationally, a campaign for Youth Pregnancy & Parenthood Awareness would include:

• Comprehensive sex education (K-12) that focuses on health risk as well as the mental, social, behavioral, and emotional effects that come with having a sexual relationship too early;

• Resources that describe the socio-economic impact on teen parent families and the community if we fail to eliminate barriers that lead to generational pregnancy and poverty;

• Provide school administrators tools and education to identify students who show signs of risky sexual behaviors, trauma, or have discussed adverse childhood experiences that would encourage an early sexual relationship; and

• Community conversations to propose and implement initiatives to support young families.
