Implementing an Evidence-Based Pregnancy Prevention Program for Youth in Out-of-Home Care: Lessons Learned from Five Implementing Agencies

Implementing an Evidence-Based Pregnancy Prevention Program for Youth in Out-of-Home Care: Lessons Learned from Five Implementing Agencies

Beginning in 2011, The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy and the American Public Human Services Association (APHSA), with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, partnered with a network of child welfare and teen pregnancy professionals and state and local teams to adapt and implement an evidence-based pregnancy prevention curriculum for youth in out-of-home care.  This project, Integration of Teen Pregnancy Prevention into State and Local Child Welfare Systems (TPP Integration), was developed in response to the need for evidence-based programs specific to youth in care, and was implemented through cross-system collaboration to deliver such programming and address the high rates of teen pregnancy among youth in care. This evaluation highlights lessons learned from five agencies implementing the adapted Making Proud Choices for Youth in Out-of-Home Care curriculum.
