Teen Pregnancy Prevention (CAT Plus)

Teens get the knowledge, power, and resources to make a change for their generation.

CAT Plus helps teens develop personal reasons for healthy decision making, resisting peer pressure, and preventing unwanted teen pregnancy, STD’s, and HIV contraction. Empowered and knowledgeable teens move toward attaining life goals such as graduating high school, going to college, and having a career. Youth discuss topics rarely covered in school classes or at home.

Services include:

  • Trained facilitators to run informational and skill-based groups at school and community-based sites.
  • Accurate and up-to-date information about abstinence, various forms of birth control and STI/HIV.
  • Teaching and reinforcing of skills to help with decision-making, giving teenagers the confidence and opportunity to put decisions into practice.
