New Online Courses for Staff of Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Programs

The Family and Youth Services Bureau is pleased to offer two new online learning courses for grantees of its Personal Responsibility Education Program, or PREP, and others working to prevent teen pregnancy and STDs:

  • Working With Subgrantees to Monitor Fidelity” is a course for State PREP grantees and others overseeing attempts to implement evidence-based adolescent pregnancy prevention programs. Participants will learn what fidelity means and how to promote the successful implementation of evidence-based programs—in the real world.
  • Adolescent Development” is a course that enables program managers and youth workers to integrate concepts of healthy adolescent development into their teen pregnancy prevention and sexuality education programs. Participants will learn about adolescent brain development and how to use that knowledge when planning programs for teens.

The courses are available on the online training site of FYSB’s National Clearinghouse on Families & Youth, a free information service for people in the youth and family services field.
