Description: The Family Health Council of Central PA (FHCCP) has developed a teen pregnancy prevention program that is promising, innovative, feasible, and could have an impact on teen pregnancy rates in the targeted communities. The program, On Second Thought (O2T), is a teen pregnancy prevention curriculum targeting 11-14 year olds. The O2T program aims to 1) increase the knowledge, confidence and skills of youth in making informed decisions regarding sexual behavior, 2) increase engagement with parents/care givers regarding sexual development and activity, 3) assist youth in identifying an environmental network of resources to support their decision-making through their sexual development, and 4) reduce adverse health outcomes among youth. Expected long-term outcomes include a decrease in the number of sexually active teens, the number of teen pregnancies, and the rates of STIs/STDs among teens living in small cities and rural PA.
O2T is being implemented by the Family Health Council of Central PA and through partnerships with Hamilton Health Center in Harrisburg, The Reproductive Health Center in Williamsport and Planned Parenthood of Western PA in Pittsburgh. More info.
