About Us

Group of teensAll teens should have a bright future in their grasp. Yet teen pregnancy creates obstacles to success, especially for our most vulnerable teens. We aim to change this reality.

To prevent pregnancy and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases among adolescents, the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) supports state, Tribal, and community efforts to promote abstinence and contraceptive education, as well as adulthood preparation programs. FYSB's Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (APP) Program administers more than 170 grants throughout the nation and several U.S. territories to help increase the capacity of youth-serving organizations. In addition to providing culturally relevant and age-appropriate sex education, these grantees provide adulthood preparation education on topics such as financial literacy and communication to help youth reach their goals for future success.
