“Promoting Health Among Teens” and “Making Proud Choices are lively, evidence-based, age appropriate programs, proven effective in reducing the risk of sexually transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS, and teen pregnancy. This program incorporates medically accurate information along with crucial knowledge on how to identify and handle social pressures. Youth learn about adolescence, hygiene, responsibility, avoiding risky behaviors, and build knowledge and confidence.
