May marks National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month, a time when youth-serving professionals aim to curb teen and unplanned pregnancy by teaching young people about the consequences of sex.
As in years past, the month will kick off with The National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy sponsored by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. An online quiz asking teens to respond to hypothetical scenarios will be released May 1 on the StayTeen.org website to prompt discussions about sex and pregnancy.
