PREP and Foster Youth
The Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) provides important resources to address high rates of teen pregnancy among youth in care, as well as with other high-risk populations. Many states focus PREP funding toward youth in the foster care system. This has inspired important cross-system collaboration among state health and child welfare agencies, as well as with local partners. The examples within this document highlight PREP’s important work with foster youth.
