School/Community Program for Sexual Risk Reduction
This program is a community-wide public outreach campaign. It incorporates
multiple forms of outreach and public education to engage the entire community
in preventing pregnancy among unmarried adolescents. Public schools, universities,
church groups and civic organizations are all targeted as sites for training
and workshops concerning human physiology, sexual development, self-concept
and sexual awareness, values clarification and communication skills. Abstinence
is promoted as the preferred sexual health decision in all activities; contraceptive
information is provided for teens who do choose to become sexually active.
The intervention was developed and field tested in a rural, low-income and
predominantly African-American community. A significant drop in the pregnancy
rate was recorded during the full implementation period of the program. View
