Teen Pregnancy Program Year 3 Funding

APC received the competitive Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program grant from the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH). The OAH TPP program is one of a growing number of federal programs that focuses on providing evidence of what works, investing in new and innovative approaches, and fostering a culture of learning. 

Through the TPP program, OAH invests in the implementation of evidence-based TPP programs such as APC’s Replicating Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program to develop and evaluate new and innovative approaches to prevent teen pregnancy. Evidence-based TPP programs are those that have been proven, through rigorous scientific evaluation, to reduce teen pregnancy and/or sexual risk behaviors associated with teen pregnancy. Currently, the HHS Teen Pregnancy Prevention Evidence Review covers a variety of diverse programs, including sexuality education programs; youth development programs; abstinence education programs; clinic-based programs; and programs specifically designed for diverse populations and settings.

The TPP program targets 6,000 youth ages 13-19 over a five-year period (2015-2020).  The program also targets 5,000 additional youth, parents and community members through community outreach by addressing the five Strengthening Families Protective Factors:

1.       Parental Resilience

2.       Social Connections

3.       Concrete Support in Times of Need

4.       Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development

5.       Social and Emotional Competence of Children

 

The goals of the TPP program are to:

1.       Reduce the rates of teen pregnancy among adolescents ages 13-19 residing within the project areas by 15%.

2.       Reduce the incidences of STIs/STDs among adolescents ages 13-19 residing within the project area by 15%.
