Don't Miss Aug. 7 Deadline for Competitive Abstinence Education Program
The Family and Youth Services Bureau is accepting applications for the implementation of the Competitive Abstinence Education (CAE) program until August 7.
The purpose of the CAE program is to provide funding for additional tools to address the rates of teen pregnancy among adolescent youth who are at greatest risk of sexually transmitted diseases/sexually transmitted infections (STD/STI) and most likely to bear children out of wedlock. Grantees under this program will be expected to develop a targeted and medically accurate approach to reducing teen pregnancies through abstinence education. Abstinence education programming is one intervention in a continuum of services that seeks to prevent teen pregnancy. Program plans will focus on the social, psychological, and health gains to be realized by delaying initiation of sexual activity and engaging in healthy relationships.
