More Than Schools: Implementing Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Programming in Non-traditional Settings

School-based programming has been the core of adolescent pregnancy prevention (APP) programming for years. However, the COVID-19 public health emergency increased barriers for organizations seeking to work and partner with local school districts. With these new challenges in mind, many practitioners are compelled to think more broadly and creatively about how and where APP programming can be implemented so youth have equitable access to information. This tip sheet provides tips, strategies, and resources for APP grantees interested in implementing programming in new settings such as churches or other faith-based institutions, public libraries, health clinics, recreation centers or other youth-serving sites, detention centers, family shelters, sports teams/programs, youth groups, afterschool programs, summer camps, summer youth employment programs, and more.
