“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.
The purpose of the Title V State Sexual Risk Avoidance Education (SRAE) Program is to fund states and territories to implement education exclusively on sexual risk avoidance that teaches youth to voluntarily refrain from sexual activity. The program is designed to teach youth personal responsibility, self-regulation, goal setting, healthy decision-making, a focus on the future, and the prevention of youth risk behaviors such as drug and alcohol use without normalizing teen sexual activity.
FYSB's Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) program awarded Maternity Group Homes for Pregnant and Parenting Youth (MGH) grants for FY2019. The MGH program supports homeless pregnant and/or parenting young people, as well as their dependent children. Youth must be between the ages of 16 and 22 to enter the program.
These grants fund programs that promote proven and culturally appropriate methods for reducing adolescent pregnancy, delaying sexual activity among youths, and increasing condom use and other contraceptives among sexually active youth in native communities.
