National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month

National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month

Event Date: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 (All day) to Friday, May 31, 2019 (All day)

 

May is National Teen Pregnancy Prevention (NTPP) Month, and this year’s theme is Creating Brighter Futures: Inspiring Youth for Positive Change. Join us as we continue our efforts to prevent teen pregnancy among the nation’s most vulnerable youth!

Although U.S. teen pregnancy rates have reached historic lows, these rates are still substantially higher than in other western industrialized nations, and disparities among racial/ethnic minorities and geographic regions persist. Watch our video PSA, “We’re Not Done Yet,” to learn more.

5 Ways to Use The Exchange this Month

  1. Create an account! If you haven’t registered yet, now is the time. You must be your grant’s primary contact to register. Once the primary contact signs up, they can add other staff and sub-grantees directly to the site. An account gets you exclusive access to resources like the Studio Tool and information about trainings. Have a question about registration? E-mail apptta@rti.org.

  2. Customize and add your organization's logo to promotional materials, including web badges, tip sheets, and infographics that have already been fact-checked and approved by FYSB with our award-winning Studio Tool.

  3. Share how you plan to celebrate NTPP Month and connect with other grantees by posting on our Comment Wall. You can also post videos and photos highlighting the events and activities in your community.

  4. Get tips and tools for ramping up your social media. Use our Social Media Toolkit to harness social media to address common challenges, like securing community buy-in or recruiting and retaining teen participants.

  5. Search more than 90 resources—sortable by topic, format, and grantee type—that are designed to help you deliver adolescent pregnancy prevention programs that help youth avoid sexual risks and prepare for a successful transition to adulthood.
