Impact Report from the Evaluation of Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Approaches

Final Impacts of the POWER Through Choices Program, September 2016

This study reports the final impact findings from a large-scale demonstration project and evaluation of POWER Through Choices, a comprehensive sexual health education curriculum designed specifically for youth in foster care and other out-of-home care settings. The study reports the long-term impacts of the program on measures of teen pregnancy and associated sexual risk behaviors. The findings build on an earlier report that examined the program’s interim impacts on measures of youth knowledge, attitudes, and intentions.

The 2016 HHS Teen Pregnancy Prevention Conference took place in Baltimore, MD, on July 19-21, 2016. This year’s conference, Connecting the Dots: Collaborating to Achieve Lasting Impacts for Youth, invited federally funded teen pregnancy prevention (TPP) and adolescent sexual health grantees to share ideas and lessons learned from their own programs, particularly as they relate to reaching vulnerable youth.

One of the goals of the APP Program is to provide vulnerable youth with STI and HIV/AIDS prevention education. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, youth ages 13 to 24 account for more than 1 in 5 of all new HIV cases; and more than half of youth living with HIV don’t know they have it. FYSB encourages PREP grantees to become familiar with the HHS Office of Adolescent Health’s Adolescent HIV/AIDS Prevention National Resource Center, which provides innovative content to empower youth-serving providers and peer leaders to meet the needs of youth at highest risk for HIV/AIDS.
