Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Multi-Component Evaluation, 2011-2017
The Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) is one of multiple efforts at the Federal level to reduce teen pregnancy through the use of evidence-based programs. The goals of the PREP Evaluation are to document how programs funded through the State PREP program are implemented in the field and to assess selected PREP-funded programs’ effectiveness. The study, being conducted by Mathematica Policy Research, will (1) describe how States have designed and implemented PREP programs, (2) collect and analyze performance measurement data, and (3) conduct random assignment impact evaluations and in-depth implementation evaluations of up to five specific PREP-funded sites.
More information on the PREP Evaluation is available here and in A Snapshot of the PREP Performance Measures Report to Congress from the Family & Youth Services Bureau.
