Please join us for a Twitter chat on preparing teens for healthy adulthoods by promoting sexual health. The Twitter chat is part of FYSB’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention Monthcampaign.
We’ll be talking to Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential in Atlanta, Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma and Child & Family Resources in Arizona, agencies that help “PREP Teens for the Future.”
Our panelists are grantees of the Family and Youth Services Bureau’s Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program. FYSB’s grant programs aim to help young people face difficult decisions related to sex and relationships through comprehensive sex education, adulthood preparation and abstinence education programming.
In particular, FYSB’s teen pregnancy prevention programs target youth who at increased risk for teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including young people who are:
In foster care
Living in rural areas or areas with high teen birth rates
From minority groups (including sexual minorities)
During the Twitter chat, we’ll ask panelists about their experience in their communities and what skills contribute to healthy adulthoods. We’ll also encourage participants to ask questions and share their thoughts on this issue.
When: May 28, 2014, at 2 p.m. EDT Who (Co-Hosts): The Family and Youth Services Bureau’s National Clearinghouse on Families & Youth (@NCFY), Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential (@G_CAPP), Cherokee Nation (@CherokeeNation) and Child & Family Resources (@CFRarizona).
