“Locate a Teen Pregnancy Prevention Trainer” is a database of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) grantees that provide training for facilitators and trainers in the 35 evidence-based curricula approved by HHS.
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.
On April 26-27, 2016, the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (APP) Program hosted an in-person training on the overlapping nature of adolescent risk. The training sought to broaden grantees’ knowledge and awareness on complex issues that vulnerable youth often encounter.
